General Library Policies

Please be courteous and respect your fellow students by keeping your voices down and your study areas clean. Food should remain outside the library. If you must bring a cell phone, please turn it off or set the ringer to vibrate, and remember to take the phone outside the library before you start your conversation. Drinks may be brought into the library, provided that you dispose of the container in the appropriate recycling bin when you are finished. No food or drinks of any kind are allowed in the computer labs. You can find more library policies online: http://library.kentlaw.edu/services/students.htm

The Library staff wishes to remind all students that the Library is open to the public, and students should guard against petty thefts by keeping their laptops and other valuables close at all times.

Library Fun: New Law in Popular Culture Collection

The Law in Popular Culture Collection is a special collection that invites students to investigate the popular perception of law, lawyers, judges, and trials. The collection also includes selected works written by lawyers and judges and selected non-fiction works about the popular perception of lawyers and judges. While the main focus of the collection is on the law in American popular culture, other viewpoints are represented. The collection contains books, DVDs, and other media that may be checked-out by DTC students, faculty and staff.

If you want to suggest titles, please send them to Holly Lakatos, the Library’s Director of Public Services, at: hlakatos@kentlaw.edu. The Library will have a very small budget for this collection, but if you have any books or DVDs that fit the collection, we would be happy to accept them as gifts. Just drop them off at the circulation desk. Be sure to include your name and contact information so that we can put a bookplate in the book or DVD case and so we can write to thank you. 

Recent additions to the collection can be found online at: http://library.kentlaw.edu/collection/lpop.htm

New Copy/Print System

The Library has installed a new copy card system! DTC students can use their new student IDs as copy cards by adding money at the new vend station in the 9th floor copy room. New copy cards will also be available for purchase in the 9th floor copy room.

The 7th, 10th, and one of the 9th floor copiers now only accept the new card. If you have an old copy card, you can still use it at the one designated copier on the 9th floor until October 1, 2006.

If you have any questions about the new card system or the photocopiers, please ask the Circulation Desk.
