The Circulation desk is where you check in and check out materials.
For example, you can borrow study aids for free! These may help you study for your other classes.
Study aids include audio CDs, flashcards, and books such as E&E (Examples and Explanations) and Q&A (Questions and Answers) that contain different types of outlines and sample questions.
The most current edition of each study aid is "on reserve" in the library. You can ask at the Circulation desk for items "on reserve."
Ask at the Circulation Desk about useful items including earplugs, bookrests, charging cables, colored pencils, and more.
The LexisNexis printer lets you print legal material such as cases, statutes, restatements, and more, for free.
When you have found a case on Lexis, click the Print icon.
Select the LexisNexis Printer in the Student Commons as the Printer Type.
Pick up your print job in the Student Commons alcove, behind the trophy case.
By the way, the regular printers are supported by Academic Technology, not by the library.
Instructions for Academic Technology's printers are under Print & Scan here:
The librarians at the reference desk all teach LRAW. You can ask any of them your questions about the Research portion of LRAW.
One question you could ask a librarian at the reference desk is: what is the CALI registration code? Once you have the CALI registration code, you can use it to register for a free account at CALI.org. CALI is the abbreviation for The Center for Computer-Assisted Legal Instruction. CALI is an association of law schools, including USC Law, whose professors contribute online lessons that students from all CALI member institutions can access. For example, here are the 1L CALI lessons.
The study rooms in the law library are freely available to current law students on a walk-in basis, unless there is a prior reservation.
To reserve a study room, use the LibCal online booking system.
Reservations are typically needed in the weeks just before finals, or any time you want to be sure a particular room will be available for you.
Dry erase markers can be used on the red wall only in each study room. Ask at the Circulation Desk if the dry erase markers in the study room aren't working.
