Snazzy New Wireless Access

Last year, as our returning students may recall, there was some trouble with wireless access in the library (and throughout the Law School).  The University has been working on the problem, which exists all across campus, this summer and hopes that the problem has been fixed for the school year. Please let us know if you have any trouble with the wireless system in the library–if we don’t know that there is a problem it’s not easy to fix it! You can contact Linda Fariss at, or stop by her office in the reference area of the library.

The Printers Are Shifting

We are moving our printers to new servers. This means that if you already have the library and UITS printers set up on your computer you will need to shift them over yourself. If you are a student you have probably already received an e-mail from the fabulous Dave with instructions on how to do this, but it doesn’t hurt to repeat it here.

Thus, in Dave’s own words– Full Story »

The Law Library Movie Collection

As some of you may already know we collect movies here at the Library.  Specifically, movies with a lawyer or legal bent.  It’s always interesting to see how people in our field are portrayed in the mass media, and there often movies that are really interesting to and appropriate for a particular class.  On top of that, though, it’s just fun.  We really enjoy racking our brains for legal movies that we have missed, and we like to think of our students curling up with My Cousin Vinny when they get too tired of using the Library’s more serious materials.

So, students, remember to take a break every once in a while and watch a lawyer movie.  And, though we won’t be doing our traditional movie buy for awhile, if you notice any important lawyer movie that we are missing let us know!

New Request Delivery Service

Legal Books GraphicNo more trekking across campus! Patrons may now receive items from other IU libraries directly through IUCAT’s Request Delivery service. Most circulating materials can be obtained through Request Delivery. Items excluded from the service include non-circulating materials, such as reference books and periodicals, materials that are checked out, reserve and short-loan items.

To use Request Delivery:-

  • Log in to IUCAT.
  • Search for item and click on the Request Delivery link located on the right-hand side of the screen.
  • Select Bloomington Law Library from the drop-down box.
  • Select a date after which you will no longer need the item and click the Request Delivery button.
  • You will be informed by email when your book is ready to be picked up from the Law Library circulation desk. Delivery takes 2-4 days.
  • The My Account link (in the red toolbar at the top of the IUCAT home-page) allows patrons to review, renew, and cancel requests.

Go ahead and start requesting – so many wonderful library books are just a click away!
