A Word from Law Librarians - Musings for National Library Week 2019

We have a lot of fun during National Library Week – it is right before Final Exams and allows us to goof off before the pressures of the end of the semester.  It is also a great time to remind our students, faculty and staff about the importance of libraries – all kinds of libraries, but especially public libraries.

2019 National Library Week at UNH Law Library

Something special happened in the UNH Law Library last week! We celebrated, National Library Week next week – April 8-12, 2019

Workstudy opportunity at the Law Library

Looking to make some money?  Come work for the Law Library!!

Now that the semester is underway, are you looking for some more money?  The law library has two new work-study job  positions for Student Collection Management Assistants.  This is an active position—helping the law librarians with filing, pocket parts, shelving books…    Because it is a little more “work” than “study,”  we’re going to pay more for your work in this position - $12 per hour.

Parliamentarians Celebrate!

Just what any good parliamentarian needs to ensure all deliberations are smooth, orderly and fair.

"The only current authorized edition of the classic work on parliamentary procedure" is now available.  Anyone who is working with town councils, homeowners associations, or other formal meetings may find these revised procedures extremely helpful.
