What Summer Break?

While students and faculty are largely absent from campus over the summer, we at the Law Library are here all summer long!  That means we are available to help you with any research project you tackle this summer, whether it be for a job, externship, or professor.  You can contact a librarian via phone or e-mail if you are off campus, or come see us in person in the Reference Office (Monday-Friday, 8:30am-5pm).  We want to support both your academic AND professional success, so please contact us this summer so we can help you ace your research projects and wow your employer!



Access to Westlaw Classic ends July 1st




Westlaw recently announced that access to Westlaw Classic for academic users will end July 1, 2014.  If you use WestlawNext exclusively this change will likely not affect you, but if you conduct any research on Westlaw Classic please take note of the July 1st cutoff.  WestlawNext will still “bridge” users into Westlaw Classic databases that are not available on the new interface, and non-academic users (firms, courts, etc…) will continue to have access to Westlaw Classic for a while longer.

If you have questions about the change or need help utilizing WestlawNext please contact a reference librarian.  You may also find Westlaw’s online WestlawNext Tutorials helpful.
