Happy National Library Week and National Library Workers Day!

Happy National Library Workers Day, to our Barry Law Library faculty and staff!
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.”

Our first floor is open again, and ready for you!

Barry Law students, faculty, staff, alumni, and visitors: our first floor Florida Collection is open and accessible again, and cleaner and nicer than ever before! Thank you SO MUCH for your patience as we cleaned up hurricane damage and improved the Law Library for YOU.

FINAL WEEK to apply for PAID Law Library Fellowship!

This is the FINAL WEEK to apply for the Trammell/Ahlers/Studwell Law Library Fellowship. If you enjoy legal research, love libraries, and want to learn everything about academic law libraries from YOUR Barry Law Library staff, this would be a perfect opportunity for you.

This is a six-week, full-time, PAID fellowship to be scheduled over the summer.  We have had three successful Law Library Fellows so far, and we look forward to working with our fourth.

Apply at http://tinyurl.com/zhwysk3, and feel free to ask us any questions you might have. The application deadline is March 31st, THIS FRIDAY!

Our Florida and Reference collections are more accessible than ever!

We have finished moving our Florida and Reference collections back downstairs to the beautiful new shelves on our first floor. These are some of our most popular and valuable collections of print materials, especially for our alumni, who are practicing law in the area.
Alumni, remember you are always welcome back at the Law Library, and we think you’ll be pleasantly surprised by our recent renovations.
And to our entire Barry Law community, ask a Reference Librarian if you need help finding anything, and thank you for being patient with us as we renovate YOUR Law Library!


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.
