I'll be attending the AALL (American Association of Law Libraries) in Boston this July. So what will I be doing? Glad you asked!
Renew your books online. Save time and gas. Never have another late fee!
Our hours have changed for the summer. Check out the schedule for May, June, and July. http://library.law.unh.edu/CalendarAccess
Your Westlaw and LexisNexis passwords will only have limited summer access unless you renew. You can renew your passwords if you meet certain criteria.
You may renew your Westlaw password if you meet any of these categores:
UNH Law students now have access to the newest legal research database - Bloomberg Law. This service is aiming to be a direct competitor to LexisNexis and Westlaw. Cases, statutes, regulations, dockets, and many secondary sources are available. Additionally, your passwords to Bloomberg Law have no summer restrictions (use as much as you want no matter where you work!).
A favorite Library Week tradition continues. Each April a blackboard and chalk mysteriously appears in the middle of the library and encourages students to write a favorite book. This year's favorites:
The Book of Mormon
When Wolf Seeks Justice
Like Water for Chocolate
Things Fall Apart
The Bible (3)
The Sound and the Fury (Entire list below)
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)
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.
