The Law Library is pleased to announce our new library catalog, Encore! Check out the video:

 If you are unable to see the video above, visit the Law Library's YouTube channel to watch the video.

Our new catalog has many awesome features:

  • Obtain article results, because you are able to search multiple databases at once.
  • New faceted fields to narrow your search on the left-hand side of screen, similar to other websites like Amazon.com.
  • Save items to a list to reference later.
  • And much more!

Come watch a 15 minute demonstration of the new catalog, offered on Wednesday February 15th and Thursday February 16th every hour on the 1/2 hour between Noon and 7pm in the Computer Lab on the 13th floor. I've heard there will be ice cream....
