Love your Library!

Posted by Library Blog on 04/08/2016 at 09:52 AM

The week of April 10-16 is National Library Week. National Library Week is the one week a year that we stop and appreciate all things library-related. Here at the RWU Law Library we will be taking time out to express gratitude to our dedicated student library workers, our amazing full-time library staff, and our awesome patrons. Thank you all!

It is sometimes easy to overlook all that the library does and is in the life of the law school. This is especially true if you are not one of the patrons who come to study in the library every day. The library’s role expands beyond the doors of the physical library. Not only does the library provide a quiet refuge, a meeting place, and study rooms, but we maintain the research resources and expertise needed to successfully engage with and study the law.

We maintain an active social media presence with a blog, the Legal Beagle, a Twitter account, a Facebook page, and a Pinterest page.

We participate in formal instruction in person and online through the LP curriculum, with our Prepare for Practice Program, and at various other times throughout the school year with school organizations and in classes. Informally, we are available for research consultations to students, student groups, faculty, RWU law alumni, licensed attorneys, and members of the RWU academic community by phone, in person, via email, and on chat.

The librarians prepare and update online resources in the form of LawGuides and by presenting access to subscription databases maintained by the library staff. Finally, our library provides a team of dedicated workers, both student and full-time, who are always willing to help whenever and wherever we are able.

Please take time to stop by the RWU Law Library during National Library Week 2016. There will be a few fun surprises as well as the dedicated team of library workers who would appreciate a thank you for the hard work they do!
