For today only I am here to inform you of some of the resources held chaste and secure behind the CIRCULATION DESK.
Voted “Subclass of materials you are most likely to know about” the Course Reserves are the materials recommended by the professors at CSL that you use if you want to pass the class. They can be checked out for a 3 hour period and if not returned on time you will be charged $3.00 per hour until our property is returned.
Academic Success materials have a long and twisted history that I will not get into at this time but what you need to know is most of your study guides come from this section. E&E, Q&A, Emanuel, Horn, Seigel’s, Understanding, Nutshell, and the almighty FINZ call this section their home. The materials are well loved by students mostly because they can be checked out for a 3 day period giving them a chance to actually look over the materials. Also the late fees for AS materials are $1.00 per day.
Course Reserve permanent
CRP are materials that were on reserve for a previous class but have been deemed worthy for permanent reserve status. Many of the study aides found in AS are also in held for you in CRP. CRP books checkout for 3 hours and $3.00 late fees apply. These materials are mostly treated as a last resort for students cramming for a midterm or final exam when all of the Academic Success materials have been checked out.
Some of you may not know that deep in the bowels of the circulation desk flash cards covering a variety of subjects await. The flash cards are a part of the Academic Success materials and can be checked out for three days and also have the $1.00 a day late fees. (And let it be known that this is the only kind of flashing allowed in the library)
Audio Study Aids
Audio Study Aids mostly consist of lectures on one given subject of law. Academic Success audio checks out for 3 days and Reserve Audio checks out for 7 days. The late fees are the same at $1 per day. Audio Materials are a hybrid of Course Reserve and Academic success this could only be explained by the long and twisted history that I said I would not bring up but it is safe to say that you should never listen to these while driving and tired. (I almost injured myself this way because of a long winded and somewhat boring Stephen King novel.)
Hidden and never spoken of your CSL library has a……bewildering selection of movies. The collection centers around films relating to legal issues but frankly some of them are a stretch. We have some quality films back there and you should give a try some time. The DVDs check out for a 7 day period and $1.00 per day late fees apply.
There are some materials that students can’t even checkout so, na-na-na-na boo-boo. I am not even going to tell you about them.
