Congratulations for making it through the first week of classes! I don’t know about the rest of you, but I’m looking forward to this three-day weekend. Use it to rest, relax, spend time with friends and family, and get ahead for the coming week. Of course, those of you studying for the February Bar Exam, keep doing what you have been doing!
New 1L students, we hope Orientation went well over the last two days, and we can’t wait to have you officially join the Barry Law community on Tuesday.
Remember that the Law Library will be open for Barry students, faculty, staff, and alumni from 8:30 AM until 5:00 PM this coming Monday, January 15th, for Martin Luther King, Jr. Day. Your Reference Librarians will be back on Tuesday, so we’ll see you then. Have a wonderful weekend!
As you walk into the library this week, take a moment to stop at the newspaper stand and check out the display on Martin Luther King, Jr. One of the most prolific orators and activists of the civil rights movement. He is the only non-president to have a national holiday dedicated in his honor. The books on display feature scanned copies of his handwritten speeches, and photos of the civil rights era.
The display case near the stairs features the Iran Nuclear Deal. You have the opportunity to vote on which side you stand on in the deal. Read the opposition and supporting arguments and choose a side. Your vote will be anonymous! At the end of the month, we will let you know which side won the votes.
Congratulations on getting through your final exams! Your Barry Law Library staff wishes you the happiest of Hanukkah, merriest of Christmas, a healthy, safe, and happy New Year, and a restful, well-deserved winter break!
The Barry Law Library will be closing at 5 PM tomorrow, Friday 12/15, then CLOSED this coming weekend. Next week we will be open with limited hours and no Reference Librarians on duty: 10 AM to 5 PM, from Monday 12/18 through Friday 12/22. Then we will be CLOSED for the holidays, starting Saturday 12/23, and reopening on Tuesday, 1/2/2018.
Students, we are starting to post your Spring 2018 syllabi on the Academic Program page on Weblaw. Several of them will be posted by tomorrow (12/15), and everything else will be posted the first week of January.
Happy Thanksgiving to all of our Barry students, faculty, staff, alumni, and Law Library regulars!
