Library Security: As Alexis reminded everyone recently, the law school buildings, including the Library, are open to the public. As such please keep your valuables with you or ask a friend to watch them if you need to leave your study area even for a minute. Also, please take special care to watch your valuables in the more isolated corners of the library. The collegial atmosphere that a faculty library fosters, together with a lack of an obvious street entrance, has meant that our library sees few thefts. However thefts have occurred in the library and on campus, and the weeks leading up to exams sometimes see a spike of activity across campus. Please report any incidents to the Campus Police at 416-978-2222.
