Anchors Aweigh at RWU Law!

Posted by Library Blog on 08/10/2016 at 08:51 AM

According to the US Naval Academy website, “’Anchors Aweigh’ is one of the most recognizable melodies in the world… The title, [of the song] ‘Anchors Aweigh, came from an expression meaning the ship's hoisted anchor has just cleared the sea's bottom and, by implication, the voyage is underway.”

Here at the RWU Law Library, we are anchors aweigh on the Fall 2016 semester!

Our collection and services are here to anchor (pardon the pun) the scholarship, practice skills education, and intellectual life at RWU Law. We have a website, a blog, a Facebook page, a Twitter account, and a Pinterest page. We communicate our information in many ways to connect the library with our students, faculty, and alum.
