“Are There Any Study Rooms Available?” Signs

If you’re wondering if there are any study rooms available, which rooms are available, or when the next one is due, find one of these signs located throughout the LRC and the Law School building, then scan the QR code with your smart phone and you’ll be taken to the catalog page for the study rooms. If you bookmark this page (and refresh it), you’ll be able to see what study rooms are available from your phone at any time or in any place! Please visit the Circ Desk if you have any questions.

Laptop and Cell Phone Theft Prevention - You Hold the Key!

The Legal Research Center reminds you that thieves on campuses aren't only after your money. They also target laptops and cell phones -- items that too many students carelessly leave unattended. A library may feel like a safe haven, but thefts do occur, and they only take a moment. When you have to step away, even briefly, remember these tips...
