New Computers Installed on Ground Floor

In support of the Law School's mission, the Center for Legal Information provides computer and information resources to the Law School community.

State-of-the-art computers were recently installed on The Center's ground floor. The equipment includes Dell Optiplex 755 desktop PCs and accompanying flat screen monitors.

Please feel free to use these and other DCLI computing facilities.

Lost & Found Alert: Please Attach Your Name to Flash Drives

The Center is experiencing a heavy influx of lost flash drives this semester. Many of these drives are the same model and without student ID information, making them almost indistinguishable from one another. This makes it difficult for students to identify their lost flash drive among those in our lost & found collection. Please take a moment to inscribe or attach your name to your flash drive. Hopefully, this measure will allow you to more readily identify, and increase your likelihood of retrieving, a lost drive.

Federal Depository Library Program Video

Congress established the Federal Depository Library Program to ensure United States citizens access to important government information. The following description is from the FDLP web site:

Easy as FDL: Free Information, Dedicated Service, and Limitless Possibilities, this video demonstrates what makes Federal depository libraries so unique and essential to the American public. People who are dedicated to and knowledgeable about the FDLP were interviewed and asked to express their opinions about Federal depository libraries and how the FDLP benefits the American public.
