Featured Resource

Current Index to Legal Periodicals. The Current Index to Legal Periodicals (CILP) is this week's Featured Resource. For more information and a description, see the next headline.

Access to CILP is IP restricted, and is available only on the Downtown Campus and by remote access for off-campus users.

CILP files now available from Library's Web Page

Now you can access the online version of the Current Index to Legal Periodicals (CILP) from our Library's Web site. Prepared by the librarians at the Marian Gould Gallagher Law Library at the University of Washington, CILP indexes current articles from over 500 law reviews and other legal publications and organizes citations by subject. Complete tables of contents for all indexed journals are available. CILP is available at the Downtown Campus and by remote access for off-campus users. For more information, visit our CILP page, http://library.kentlaw.edu/Resources/Clipslogin.htm.

Increased Network Access in Study Rooms

The Library will now lend an Ethernet switch to students who wish to connect more than one computer to study room network ports. The switch can hook up to 4 computers to a single network connection. It is very easy to use -- simply plug it in and go!

The switch is available at the 9th floor Service Desk. Students must leave an ID at the desk while using the equipment.

New Library Display

The Library has a new display featuring some of the antiquarian books in our collection. This collection is kept on the highest shelves in the 10th floor reading room. The display is located in the display cabinet near the main entrance to the Library. Stop by and take a look at the new display!

New Copiers and Copycards

The library has two new digital copiers located on the 9th floor of the library. In addition to the new copiers, the library also has a new debit copier card system.

If you have a copier card from our previous debit card system, you can have the balance transferred from that card to a new copier card. Please bring your old copier card to the library’s Service Desk to have the balance transferred to a new copier card. Only copier card exchanges are allowed, cash reimbursements will not be given for old copier cards.

Library Suggestion Box

A suggestion box is available in the Library.

The box is mounted to the wall on your right as you enter the Library on the 9th floor. All suggestions, comments, and complaints will be answered as soon as possible, usually within 24 hours of receipt. Both suggestions and replies will be posted on a bulletin board to the left of the box.

You are not limited to the suggestion box! Please send me an E-mail to: Keith Stiverson (KSTIVERS), give me a call (x65610), or come to see me in room 871 if there is anything you want to discuss about the Library or its services.

Keith Ann Stiverson, Library Director

Consideration for Others in the Library

Please try to maintain a quiet atmosphere in the Library for the benefit of all those who are studying around you. If you need to work in a group, study rooms are available. You may use any unreserved study room, or make a reservation at the Service Desk with your current ID.

Study Room Policy

Study rooms are for group study by IIT students using the Downtown Campus Libraries' resources. You may reserve a room in advance at the Service Desk with your current ID.

Library Cell Phone Policy

Before entering the Library, cell phones must be turned off. In addition, you must leave the Library before using your cell phone. We have been inundated with complaints about the disturbances caused by cell phone usage in the Library, which has forced us to adopt this policy.

For those of you with an emergency situation who must be reachable by cell phone, you can leave your phone on ONLY if it gets your attention by some method other than ringing. If you have one that vibrates quietly or uses a blinking light, you can leave it on while you are in the Library. This exception does not change the requirement that you leave the Library to use your phone.

Library Food and Drink Policy

1) Drinks are permitted, except in the computer labs, if they are in a reusable hard plastic or metal container with a permanent lid that does not have to be removed to drink. Water is allowed in a standard water bottle with a securable cap.

Not allowed are: cans, styrofoam or paper cups, soft drinks or juice in bottles.

2) Food is not permitted in the Library.

3) No food or drinks of any kind are allowed in the computer labs.

Please Guard Your Valuables

Personal belongings, such as laptops, wallets, purses, briefcases, cell phones, and Palmtops should be carried with you whenever you leave your study area. If they are left unattended, security personnel may remove them to a safer location.
