ATTENTION GRADUATING STUDENTS: YOUR MEMORABILIA NEEDED FOR LOBBY DISPLAY CASE
Believe it or not, it's time to begin planning our annual graduation display in the lobby! As we have done in the past, we will create a collage of pictures, memorabilia, and clippings commemorating your three years at the Law School. We have already gathered a few things, but the best source of such souvenirs is you. We would like to include photographs depicting your lives while law students (friends, events, weddings, children, etc.); group photographs of law journals, student groups, and moot court teams; memorabilia, including Law School tee shirts, cups, and posters from events; plaques, trophies, and awards; newspapers clippings from the past three years about you, a fellow third-year law student, or the Law School (be sure to include the date and the name of the newspaper); and anything else of significance that is in reasonably good taste and that fits in the display case. We reserve the right to omit any item.
Please give items to the librarians in the reference office or to Karen McAbee, the assistant to the Law Library director, by Monday, March 29. We will return all the items to you following graduation. To ensure that we have all the necessary information to return the items, please do not leave your items in the office or at the circulation desk. Each item must have a completed form attached that includes your name and your return address. You can pick up these forms at the reference desk or in the library office. All comments and reminiscences must be signed (your name, however, will not necessarily be used in the display).
For pictures, include the first and last name of each person in the picture as well as each person's current class standing (1L, 2L, 3L, non-law), what event is pictured, and the year in which it was taken. You may also include a caption. Photographs can be any size, unless they are prints of digital photos, which should be standard sizes (3x5" or 4x6").
ATTENTION SMOKERS: A REMINDER
Please note that there is no smoking permitted on the steps or entrance to the Law School off Indiana Street nor in the overhang area just outside the middle entrance to the garden patio. We have had significant traces of smoke in the library and other offices because of the powerful intake fans in the overhang area. If you wish to smoke, you must go to the upper patio. University policy dictates that there should be no smoking within 30 feet of the building. Please respect the rights of all.
All e-mail about reserving classrooms must be sent to BL-LAW-EVENTS. Mail must be sent to the correct address, bl-law-events (for Outlook users) or firstname.lastname@example.org (for non- Outlook users).
