In Check This Out on November 30, 2012 at 4:14 pm

Final exams are just around the corner and Schmid Law Library is here to help.  The library is open extended hours the next two weekends for exam preparation and study:

Friday, November 30th & December 7th, 7:30 AM – 12:30 AM

Saturday, December 1st & December 8th, 8:00 AM – 10:00 PM

Sunday, December 2nd & December 9th, 9:00 AM -12:30 AM

If you’re looking for class study-aids, we have a number of Nutshells available – check the collection near the Reference desk or ask a librarian for help.

Study rooms are available each day, but the “early bird gets the room” this time of year.  Sorry, we don’t take phone reservations for study rooms.

Reference Assistance is available, a librarian will be at the Reference desk from 8AM – 5PM and over the lunch hour – stop by to chat, ask a question or get some candy.

The staff and Librarians at Schmid Law Library wish you “good luck”
