Musings

index_photoThe law library recently acquired campus wide access to The Chronicle of Higher Education.  Check it out here.

Congratulations to our May 2013 graduates!  Remember to check out the library’s information resource guides on the bar exam and job hunting!  Don’t forget that the library has two iPads with Bar Max loaded on them.  Please stop by the Reference Desk to check these out.  They have practice multiple choice questions.  You can also browse bar review materials in this office.

South Carolina Advance Sheets are available in print in Row 34B  or adjacent to the Circulation Desk; they are available in electronic format too.  After your graduation on Saturday, you will continue to have access to the library, until the end of the July bar exam,  with your SONITROL card. You will be able to use the library’s study rooms, check out materials, and print through the end of July.  Again, congratulations, enjoy your weekend, and study hard this summer!

Maymester and Summer library hours are posted here and are as usual.  The library will be open on Monday, May 27th, Memorial Day, and again on Thursday, July 4th, Independence Day, from 9:00 a.m. – 6:00 p.m.  It will be security staffed only.

Information about student summer access to Bloomberg BNA Law, Lexis, and Westlaw can be found here.    Don’t forget that Westlaw is removing the Westlaw printer on June 3rd.  West is pulling printers and printing at all law schools, giving students the opportunity to use online folders instead and reduce their carbon footprints.

There are also two iPads without BarMax that can be checked out by 1Ls  and 2Ls.  Again, stop by the Reference Desk to check these materials out.

Either enjoy the summer or have a productive one!
