Joshua LaPorte, Circulation Desk Supervisor / Library Assistant,UConn Law
Forgot your casebook? Want to compare an earlier edition of a casebook to see what has changed before purchasing the new one? The Library keeps a copy of most required course texts on reserve – we have all casebooks but we do not purchase statutory supplements or coursepacks.
To locate books you need, please use the “Course Reserve” search available directly from the library home page (circled) and insert the course name or instructor into the search box (arrow):
If we don’t have the title we need, please let our desk staff know; we will verify that it is a required reading and purchase a copy for reserve.
The library welcomes all of our new students, and welcomes back our returning students. We are excited to see the campus and library full of students once again!
The library is here to answer your questions (about anything), provide a comfortable study space, provide collaborative spaces and technology, and assist you with legal research and using legal materials. Last year, we answered 1,200 reference questions, checked out 3,000 reserve items, circulated our laptops and other equipment over 4,000 times, and taught 20 classes on legal research and library resources. Whatever your needs are as a law student, we probably have some way to help.
