Copy Cards
The Information Center has a new copy card system. If you have copy cards from the old system you can exchange them for full value until September 7. 

Lexis and Westlaw
Westlaw passwords for new first year students and Westlaw software are available at the 9th Floor Service Desk.  The Lexis passwords and software have not yet arrived, but we will alert you by Broadcast Message and by message here in the Record when they come in. 

Local Federal Court Rules Tutorial
This week's tutorial will cover local federal court rules. We will show you where to find them and discuss their use. You can find the tutorial schedule posted in the entry way of the library.  There is no need to sign up to attend; just come to the Reference Desk at the scheduled time. Tutorials are taught by Reference Librarians and last  approximately 20 minutes. If you have questions or suggestions regarding tutorials, please email Liz Robb (EROBB). 

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 into the Illinois Reserve Room and integrated with the existing Illinois Reserve collection.  A set of Smith-Hurd Illinois Annotated Statutes, Illinois Reports, Illinois Appellate Court Reports, and the Illinois Digest are still available on the 9th floor.  Please ask at the Reference Desk if you have any questions.

New Library System Update
The implementation of our new online system, scheduled to be available soon, is progressing. The new and improved system will provide greater searching capabilities and online circulation. Until the new system is fully implemented, we will no longer enter new data into Clark. We will, however, have information about new materials available at the Reference Desk. 

The library software has arrived and the staff training has started. We will spend the next few weeks imputing data to make the new catalog current.  It will take us a while to get used to the new system, so please be patient if everything isn't "business as usual" during our time of transition.
