The Law Library is here for YOU:
A quiet and comfortable place to study, get your questions answered, and find books and materials to help you succeed in law school and beyond.

The construction of new study rooms on the first and second floors is coming along well, and we expect they will be ready in time to study for midterms.

If you need help locating the Florida Collection, those books have been temporarily moved to the third floor.  Just ask any of us, and we’ll take you to whatever you need.

Orientation!

Today is the first day of Orientation here at Barry Law, so welcome to our entering 1L class! You’ll be hearing a lot about the Law Library and meeting our staff at several points over the next few days, but think of this place as your new home away from home, and our staff as your newest best friends and closest allies.
All of you, including those who have been around for a while, check out our redesigned Law Library website!
You may be surprised to see some big changes happening in the Law Library, but we are renovating the building for YOU, with several new study rooms being built. We have had to move things around (both in the Library itself and on the new site), so if you can’t find what you’re looking for, let us know!
Welcome to all, and welcome back! And we’ll see you all on Monday, if not before.

Welcome, Kevin Ruh!

Barry Law Library is excited to welcome our newest employee, Kevin Ruh, who’ll be taking over our Evening Circulation Assistant position.

Kevin will be working Sunday – Thursday evenings at the law library. He is a graduate of George Mason University and holds a bachelor of arts in foreign languages with a proficiency in Spanish. Kevin comes to us with a strong background in libraries. Before joining the team at Barry, he worked as a senior library technical assistant at Seminole State College library, and previous to that he was a catalog assistant at James Madison  University.

Kevin can be reached at the circulation desk at the  library. Please join us in welcoming him to campus and to the library. We are lucky to have him!

Library anxiety? Hopefully not at our Law Library!

http://www.atlasobscura.com/articles/the-strange-affliction-of-library-anxiety-and-what-librarians-do-to-help

Apparently some undergraduate students experience “library anxiety,” but we hope nobody suffers from that here at Barry University School of Law. If any of you feel intimidated or overwhelmed in the Law Library, don’t be embarrassed to ask for help from a Reference Librarian or Circulation staff member. That’s why we’re here: to help you find what you need, to answer your questions, to solve whatever problems we can for you, and to send you home feeling empowered with the knowledge and information you seek.

Our students and faculty are all brilliant people, but sometimes everyone needs to stop to ask for directions, metaphorically or literally. Talk to us. Shoot us an e-mail at LawReferenceLibrarians@barry.edu or schedule a PERC (Personal Research Consultation) at http://barry.libsurveys.com/perc. Get to know us, and we’ll get to know you.

Help us help you, and you won’t regret it.

Final exams are still going on, so make yourselves at home here!

Well, the Bar Exam is over, so hopefully our alumni can relax and recover. But in the meantime, even though things are changing in the Law Library, our students are still welcome to study for their final exams in here, check our supplements and anything else they need, and let us know if we can help them in any way.

For those of you with exams next week, our hours are extended until midnight this Friday, July 29th, and Saturday, July 30th.
