TODAY: Cost Effective Legal Research

How does legal research really work outside of law school? What does "in plan" mean? The library is presenting a bite-sized afternoon of cost effective legal research training. Stay for one, two, three, four, or all presentations. All events are taking place in the OTC (library classroom, first floor). Pizza is from Constantly Pizza. (full schedule below)

Library Week - Day 2

“Libraries are never as placid as they appear.  They are often sources and centers of controversy and conflict.  The better they are, the more dangerous libraries can seem.”

Pre-Library Week Fun (AKA - Win a Peeps Cake!)

From our Library Week Ringmaster, Kathy Fletcher:

"Next Week is National Library Week!

1Ls— ask anyone who’s been here for a while, and they will tell you that Library Week is, quite simply, the BEST WEEK to be at UNH School of Law!  There’ll be prizes, games, “candy of the day,” and general mirth and merriment all celebrating libraries, reading, and literacy.
