The Library staff wishes our new entering class the very best of luck as you embark on your law school career. We are here to help you in using the Library and with its electronic and print resources. You will learn about some of these resources at your combined IT/Library orientation sessions next week.
Lexis, Westlaw and Bloomberg Law are three of the many electronic resources you will have access to while you are a student. These are the three major legal databases, and during your Fundamentals of American Law class, or your Case Reading Workshop next week, you will receive your Lexis and Bloomberg Law registration cards and your Westlaw password. Please follow the instructions on each of these items and register yourself in all three systems as soon as possible. Training sessions in Lexis and Westlaw will be held in September and in Bloomberg Law in the spring semester.
Reference assistance is available to you in person at the first floor reference desk, by email (firstname.lastname@example.org), by phone (718-780-7567) or by Live Chat from the Library homepage
We have several events planned for you this fall: two Bluebooking with Success Workshops and two Research Review Sessions in late October/early November and our 3rd Annual Legal Research Fair on September 30th. Stay tuned for more details about these events.
Best of luck and we’ll see you in the Library!
