Services for Alumni

hein-alumni-accessYou graduated.  Congratulations!  Here’s our gift to you: The Law Library is here to help you even post-graduation.  Our newest service for alumni is a subscription to HeinOnline’s Alumni Access Program, which provides you access to Hein’s Law Journal Library.  This collection is well known for providing access to the full run of a vast collection of law reviews, bar journals, and more, and the Alumni Access Program ensures that you retain access to this significant collection even as you venture beyond your law school years.  Sign up for access to our Hein Alumni account by visiting our Alumni Services guide and filling out the brief form.

While at this guide, you might want to take a look at some of the other services available to you as an alum.  For instance, if you have an interest in multidisciplinary databases, you may want to look into IU’s alumni access to JSTOR and ProjectMuse.  If you are interested in using materials from our physical collection, refer to this guide to see what copy and send services we offer.

Most importantly, don’t forget that the reference librarians are here to help you, no matter where you’re located or how long ago you graduated.  We’ve created and continue to build a collection of research guides on a variety of legal research subjects.  Materials in our digital repository – including historical school documents as well as a considerable library of scholarly articles from our journals and our faculty – are available to you for free.  Finally, we’d be happy to answer your research questions over the phone (812) 855-2938, via email, or in person.

You may leave, but we’re still here for you!  Remember, when in doubt, ask a law librarian.

Election Day

Monroe County Primary Election Day is today, so if you would like to be involved in local politics today is the day to get out and vote.  Not sure when and where?  There are some great resources online to help you. You may want to check the Indiana Voters page from the Indiana government website.  If you are registered to vote in Indiana you simply have to enter your county, name, and birthdate into this website and it will tell you where you polling place is, and who is on your ballot.

You might also take a look at the local paper for your information. The Herald-Times offers sample ballots, race previews, and a map of polling places.  It’s hard to find the time during finals—but get out there and vote!
