New Library System Update 
The implementation of our new online system, scheduled to be completed by Fall 1999, is progressing. The new and improved system will provide greater searching capabilities and online circulation. 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.  

The software for the system has arrived, has been loaded at the end of June, and extensive staff training is scheduled for the week of July 12-16.  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.*

Illinois Collection

The Information Center's collection of Illinois materials, formerly shelved on the 6th floor, has been moved to the 10th floor Illinois Reserve Room.  Illinois Statutes and other Illinois materials formerly in the 10th floor Main Reading Room have also been moved to the Illinois Reserve Room and integrated with the existing Illinois Reserve collection.  Please ask at the Reference Desk if you have any questions.
