Library Security: It is important to remember that the law school buildings, including the Library at Birge, 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. Thefts have occurred in campus libraries 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.
Research Help: As deadlines for papers approach remember that the librarians are available to advise you on research strategy, databases and citation style. Please feel free to contact John Bolan, Susan Barker, or Sooin Kim.
