Library Tip of the Week: Welcome, Reserves, and Study Room Reservations

by Cynthia Burress on 2021-01-11T00:00:00-06:00 | Comments

Welcome back! We hope you had a wonderful winter break. Here's the first Library Tip of the semester...

Did you know that all of the required books for current in-residence courses are on reserve in the Law Library’s Course Reserves Collection?

And if you need a place to peruse your course materials, the library has dozens of seats available for students in our Reading Room and throughout the library. You can also reserve a study room if you want a place for quiet study. To reserve a study room, just click here!

The Course Reserves Collection is located at the Circulation Desk. Don’t worry if you inadvertently left your course book at home for the day. Just stop by and ask to borrow ours! Reserve items can be checked out for use within the library. Please note that due to the ongoing pandemic and the high demand for these books, reserve books are available for scanning only. Here are the details:

  • You can check out a book and use our copy room to scan the pages you need.
  • Scanning is free; just make sure you send the scan to your TAMU email address.
  • You must wear gloves and your mask while scanning. Gloves are available at the circulation desk and will be provided to you when you request a book.
  • When you're done scanning, simply return the book to the Circulation Desk and dispose of your gloves.

Following these procedures will help ensure that the library doesn't have to quarantine reserve books and can make them available to all students.

Please be aware that in accordance with School of Law policy, masks and social distancing are required in the library at all times, including in study rooms. Next week’s tip will have more information about this and other COVID-19-related changes to the library that might affect you.

Best wishes for a pleasant and productive semester!

Your Dee J. Kelly Law Library
