New Library System Update 
The implementation of our new online system, scheduled to be completed by Fall 1999, is progressing.  We have extracted the second and final set of records to be loaded into the new system. Until the new system is implemented in mid July, we will no longer enter new data into ClarK. We will, however, have some information about new materials available at the Reference Desk. Please be patient if everything isn't "business as usual" during our time of transition. We will keep you informed as implementation progresses.

Summer Lexis and Westlaw Passwords 
Unless you renewed them for the summer, your Lexis and Westlaw passwords expired at the end of the Spring semester. However, you can extend them for summer school or other approved purposes.  Forms to extend Westlaw passwords are available at the Reference Desk. You can also sign up for summer passwords online. For Westlaw, go to , click on "Law School Services", then "Password Extension".  For Lexis, go to, click on "Special Offers", "Summer Offers", then "Need Access to LEXIS-NEXIS This Summer?".  

*Please be aware that your passwords will not be immediately turned back on. Lexis and Westlaw may tell you that it will take up to five days to reactivate them.* 
New Copy Card System 
As of Monday, May 24, the Information Center has a new copy card system. The new system uses the same debit format as the previous system.  You won't be able to use old copy cards with the new system, but you can exchange your old cards for full value. There will be no cash refunds for old cards; only exchanges.
