Bring It On!

  • Jenkins Law Library Reference Room
    The Reference Room is waiting for you!

We're open in our new location! The reference PCs are humming away quietly, ready to connect you to the world of legal research. The books are organized and back on their shelves. Phones and email are up and running.

To be honest, we won't be at 100% on the first day. The classroom is still a work in progress. Staff members are stumbling upon rooms they didn't know existed. Some processes -- lookin' at you, photo library IDs! -- have kinks that are being worked out.

But we're as ready as we'll ever be, and excited to show off our new space. So bring it on!
