Reserve Materials: Something for Everyone!

Author: Susan Good

Most students have made use of the library’s Course Reserves at some point, but not many know about the other materials available behind the Circulation Desk.

Ever need a little reminder of why you wanted to be a lawyer in the first place? Let Atticus Finch, A Few Good Men, and Elle Woods remind you. The library has a sizeable collection of DVDs, ranging from legal classics like To Kill a Mockingbird and My Cousin Vinny to more unexpected titles like True Grit, Best in Show, and Bridget Jones’ Diary. Movies can be checked out for 3 days at a time, and a complete list (no fewer than 17 pages!) is available in the Reserve binder at the Circulation Desk.

Past Exams
Ever wish you had a better idea of what to expect on a final exam? Many professors have put their past exams on Reserve. Hard copies can be checked out for two hours, and many exams are available in PDF format on the library website (NetID and password required). Get a leg up on your exam prep!

Examples & Explanations and Nutshells
Looking for a little clarification or a general explanation? There are over 30 Examples & Explanations titles and over 170 Nutshell series books on Reserve, covering topics from A to Z (well, W actually: Workers Compensation).

Lost and Found
Lost a textbook, phone, computer charger, or jewelry in the library? All these items and more get turned in on a regular basis by good Samaritans.
