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.

Library provides you streaming movie service....

Move over NETFLIX and HULU. The Library now provides you with a streaming video service you can use on campus, at home and using your ROKU. Kanopy offers you a large collection of award-winning films and documentaries. Kanopy includes children's programming. While it has some movies similar to NETFLIX and HULU, it has a deep inventory of films you would not see on those services. Check it out. Like most of our online services, when you are off campus, you will be asked for your UNH creds while you create your account.
