This session was presented on September 25, 2019 in Classroom A of Hirsch Hall at 12 noon. All students, faculty and staff were welcome to attend.


There's more to the library than books and a pretty view! Come learn about the useful and not-so-obvious services the law library has to offer. Topics covered will include:

  • Navigating the library facility, browsing the shelves by subject, and emergency prep info
  • Other items (other than books!) that are available for checkout
  • How to find and request items in Course Reserves or through Interlibrary Loan
  • How to search GAVEL (the library catalog) and use subject headings to discover related items by topic
  • What our most popular databases are (other than Westlaw and Lexis Nexis) and how to use our A to Z list and research guides
  • What types of questions the Circulation Desk and the Reference Desk can answer
