We are excited to announce that the Charlotte School of Law Library won First Place in the “Best Video” category of the 2014 American Association of Law Libraries 2014 Day in the Life contest!
In Spring of 2013, in preparation for our impending move to a high-rise in uptown Charlotte, we began a massive book giveaway initiative to rid the collection of redundant materials, free up space, and share these resources with our law students and local legal community. Through this project over thirteen thousand books found loving families, but in the midst of the madness, a few books ended up scampering away that needed to come back home. Enter the Librarians on Patrol – in October, six of our staff, both strong and brave, took a trip in a U-Haul across state lines to find our babies and bring them back so they could be stored, wrapped and transferred to our new library shelves come January 2014.
Featuring: Aaron Greene, Ashley Moye, Brian Trippodo, Cory Lenz, Kim Allman & Minerva Mims
