New Table Lamps in Annex
Thank You!

Thanks again to everyone for your patience and good humor while we finished all the construction projects in the library. We hope you agree that the addition of the end panels adds considerably to the beauty of the main reading room. 

At some point we will replace the damaged table lamps in the Annex, but we'll try to get that done after fall exams are complete.   

Legal Reference in Non-Legal Settings

Librarians at public libraries and non-law academic libraries frequently receive reference questions on legal topics. To help these information professionals answer legal related reference questions with skill and confidence, Acquisitions Librarian Wendy Moore presented a program about legal reference at the annual meeting of the Georgia Council of Media Organizations on October 18. In addition to providing search tips and internet resources, Ms. Moore cautioned the attendees against giving legal advice and practicing law without a license. Student Services Librarian Maureen Cahill assisted in preparing the materials for the program, which was well attended and well received.
