This whole week is National Library Week. According to the American Library Association, “First sponsored in 1958, National Library Week is a national observance sponsored by the American Library Association (ALA) and libraries across the country each April. It is a time to celebrate the contributions of our nation’s libraries and librarians and to promote library use and support. All types of libraries – school, public, academic and special – participate.”
Well, you all made it through midterm exams, so next week is Spring Break! Woooooo! Whether you have an exciting adventure planned, you’re looking forward to a relaxing stay-cation at home, or you’ll use the week off to catch up or get ahead on work (you appellate brief writers!), your Law Library staff hopes you have a safe, fun time. And that goes for our wonderful faculty and staff too, not just our students!
The Barry Law Library will be CLOSED this weekend (Saturday March 3rd – Sunday March 4th), and open with limited hours next week: 8:30 AM to 5:00 PM on Monday March 5th – Friday March 9th. Your Reference Librarians will be on duty during that time, so definitely e-mail us or come on by if you need anything or just want a change of scenery. We should be even quieter than usual (since libraries are usually quiet), in case you want to schedule a Personal Research Consultation with us.
Working on your Upper Level Writing Requirement or a seminar paper for class?
Your Barry Law Reference Librarians are planning a new workshop for students about to take on those research and writing challenges:
Come join us for tips, tricks, tools, and techniques to assist your research as you dig deep into paper topics, just in time for Spring Break!
