I am here to inform you of some of the resources held chaste and secure behind the CIRCULATION DESK.
Voted the #1 “Subclass of materials you are most likely to know about”, Course Reserves are materials recommended by professors at CSL that you might want to use if you hope to pass the class. They can be checked out for a 3 hour period and if not returned on time, you will be charged $3.00 per hour until the library’s property is returned.
Academic Success materials have a long and twisted history that I will not get into at this time; what you need to know is that most of your study guides come from this section. E&E, Q&A, Emanuel, Horn, Seigel’s, Understanding, Nutshell, and the almighty FINZ call this section home. The materials are well loved by students, mostly because they can be checked out for a 3 day period, giving them a chance to actually look over the materials. Also, late fees for AS materials are $1.00 per day.
That’s right folks – we have iPads! They check out for a 7 day period, and you can even renew them for an extra week. That’s right – an iPad can be yours for two whole weeks. But wait – there’s more! You are also able to login with your personal apple ID and install any apps you like on your recently checked out iPad. Just make sure to remember that all information will be wiped from the device when the iPads is returned to the library
Be sure to return your iPad before the due date to save yourself from some hefty fees. No shipping and handling. For more information on iPads, or how to catch a monkey using salt, visit the circulation desk at your local law library. Roll credits. Infomercial over.
This item isn’t really behind the circulation desk. It is actually on the circulation desk. On display next to the general office supplies you find at circulation, you will find The Professor Binder. The Professor Binder contains professor’s contact information, required textbooks for their course, and suggested study aids. This is a great new resource for students – on your next visit to circulation give it a glace.
CRP are materials that were on reserve for a previous class but have been deemed worthy of permanent reserve status. Many of the study aides found in AS are also held for you in CRP. CRP books check out for 3 hours and $3.00 late fees apply. These materials are mostly treated as a last resort for students cramming for a midterm or final exam when all of the Academic Success materials have been checked out.
Some of you may not know that deep in the bowels of the circulation desk, flash cards covering a variety of subjects await. The flash cards are a part of the Academic Success materials and can be checked out for three days and also have the $1.00 a day late fees. (And let it be known that this is the only kind of flashing allowed in the library)
Audio Study Aids mostly consist of lectures on one given subject of law. Academic Success audio study aids check out for 3 days, and late fees are $1 per day. It is safe to say that you should never listen to these while driving and tired. (I almost injured myself this way because of a long winded and somewhat boring Stephen King novel.)
- Study room Kit and Headphones
Does your study room need a little color? Do you like the idea of earmuffs that project sound? Is the square root of 49 equal to 7? If you answered yes to any of these questions, then the circulation desk should be your next destination. Each study room kit contains dry erase markers, a dry erase eraser and dry erase board spray. Each headphone kit contains…uh… a set of headphones. These items can be checked out any time the circulation desk is open and must be returned before the desk closes for the night.
We have a plethora (that’s right, I said it) of video out cables at the circulation desk. We have iMac, iPad, iPhone, Lightning, VGA, and HDMI video out cables. When I read that list only one word comes to my mind. PLETHORA. These cables also checkout for the day and must be returned before the circulation desk closes.
Thank you very much for reading!
