Focus on Marie Mize

Marie Mize is the Law Library’s circulation manager. She manages the business end of the Circulation Department and our student workers who man the circulation desk. Among her many other duties she is largely responsible for the “Circ Attitude” of always friendly, how-can-we-help-you courtesy. Always willing to pitch in and lend a hand, she’s also behind most of the exhibits put on here at the law library and she makes the DVD collection come alive with different features. Marie is not only the chair of the Law School Staff Council but is also the Law School representative on the UGA Staff Council. Marie has a BS in Marketing and Management from Kennesaw State University and an MBA from Auburn.

Marie is an avid fan of all things historic especially in connection with the University of Georgia, all aspects of baseball, and her own family genealogy, which has an incredible line of judges, generals, and even a Hall of Fame baseball player. Marie is also a discerning patron of great music made here in Athens, so stop by and ask her what’s playing around town any time.

New HeinOnline Resource for Tax & Economic Reform

The Law Library recently acquired HeinOnline's new database: Taxation & Economic Reform in America Parts I and II. Use this database for the legislative histories of tax legislation, the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009, the Gramm-Leach Bliley Act, Securities Act of 1933 and 1934 and much more. Through this database researchers can look at the historical economical foundation of the United States leading to our current economic state. The information on regulations, laws, and legislative histories in this new resource reach back to the late 1700's.

Umbrellas at Circulation

The next time it's raining and you forget your umbrella, the Law Library has you covered! We now have umbrellas available for checkout for a 24 hour period.  See your friends at Circulation if you would like to check one out.

Reference Service Now Available via Chat!

Chat Reference is now available during the hours the Reference Desk is staffed. Use this new service for assistance with brief questions, such as identifying the appropriate resources to answer a question or locating a specific resource. More complex questions usually require an alternative method of communication, such as an in-person reference interview.
