Welcome to the Library Blog

Hi!

The Library has a blog.  This is it.  We will post announcements on Mondays (except for holidays).  We will post some interesting things about law or libraries or books on Wednesdays.  And on Fridays, we will give you some ideas of what to do for the weekend – which could range from looking for a topic for your ALWR to where to get good sushi.  Librarians know all kinds of things.

Today, I would like to share with you the kind of things that Librarians watch when they are not answering reference questions or helping with research (which is not very often, that is why it is a short video):  Here is what books do when you are not around.
