The Law Library has been an integral part of the Law School since 1967. This particular picture from before the Law Library is opened, is of law librarian U.V. Jones showing Dean Richard B. Amandes some of the new books that are going to be added to the collection.
Even today, the Law Library continues to be a valuable resource helping our faculty, students, practitioners and public patrons with the help of our vast collection of legal resources and of course, our librarians!

Over the summer, the library was very busy shifting our collection on the first floor to other parts of the library. This change was made because we recognized a need for more group study space. Since this is the only non-quiet area of the library, students often come here to work on homework and study together. With the absence of books and bookshelves, we were able to put in more tables and seating for a better group work experience.
