Would you like to gain a better understanding of a legal topic you are studying this Spring? Are you interested in finding out more about the Law Library's Academic Success collection and Westlaw's online study aids? How about learning to use some new legal apps for your mobile device that can help with your studies?
Come learn some tips for success from your very own Law Library staff this Tuesday, February 5th from 12-1pm. The workshop will take place in the Library's Teaching Lab, located on the 13th floor in classroom 1337. Please feel free to bring you lunch!

Are you enrolled in a seminar course during intersession? Need some help with research strategy and navigating the myriad resources available to you? Don’t feel like traveling to the Law Library?
Well look no further – the PSL Law Library is introducing “Roving” Research Assistance in the student lounge on the 20th floor this week and next. A Librarian outfitted with an iPad, loaded with legal research apps, will be available to answer any questions you may have about conducting research for your topic.
Research assistance in the student lounge will be available from 12-1pm and from 4-5pm on Tuesday and Wednesday, 1/8 & 1/9 and again on 1/15 & 1/16. Please feel free to stop by and chat with us!
Speaking of iPads, did you know that the Law Library owns several iPads that you can check out? That’s right! Just visit the Circulation desk during regular hours and we’ll get you all set up!
