Cool Stuff at Circulation

You can get nearly anything you want at the Circulation Desk. Of course we have books (those with location Reserve). But we also have:

  • charging cords for every kind of electronic device
  • headphones
  • calculators
  • umbrellas
  • book stands, and
  • even a couple of iPads with keyboards
And, right on the counter you can find a stapler that works on any sized stack of paper, a three hole punch, paper clips, tape, and earplugs.

Don’t despair if you need something not in these lists. Just ask. If we don’t have it, we will try to find a way to get it for you.

Pronunciator conversational language program
The Law Library now provides access to a conversational language learning service called Pronunciator. With more than 80 different languages to choose from, Pronunciator provides lessons, flashcards and pronunciation analysis. The best part? You can use it on your favorite iOS or Android devices, as well as a laptop.

To track your progress and to use it on mobile devices, you must first create an account and password from this link while you are on the Law School network. Then you can use it anywhere!
