The New Book Drop
Test of Annex Emergency Alarms

Now that we have all relaxed after a few days of no annoying construction noise in the annex--it's time to test the system.

The word that we have is that the system installers will conduct a test of the system on Thursday (2/6) sometime between 10 am and 3 pm.  We're guessing the huge window of time is because the fire marshal actually has to be here for the test.

The test will involve the alarms sounding and a "pleasant female voice" instructing everyone to exit the building. We'll let the brave souls who are spending five hours on edge waiting for the event remain seated.

We sincerely hope this is the last commotion in connection with this system for a very long time.

New Book Drop

The Law Library has replaced the old and rusted-out book drop that used to greet you at the entrance to the Law School. In addition to enhancing the "curb appeal" of the entrance, the shiny new book drop provides better protection to the materials placed in it.

Please note that the book drop is only able to accept materials during times when the Law Library is closed. When the Law Library is open, please return materials to the Circulation Desk.

ExamSoft Contribution to Save Darfur

It is not unusual for the Law Library to receive holiday greeting cards from vendors who provide us with products. However, we thought you would like to know that this year we received a holiday card from ExamSoft stating that a contribution to the Save Darfur Coalition had been made in our school's honor. The donation will be used to help find peace and security for the people of Darfur.
