Read law review articles published nationwide by our faculty from the John Marshall Institutional Repository. Launched two months ago, the IR has been quite a success!
To date, we’ve uploaded nearly 350 article PDFs, and most are available for full-text download. For those that aren’t, we provide citation information. The JMLS Institutional Repository promises to bring greater recognition to the work published by JMLS. So far, faculty articles have been downloaded more than 2,350 times! And we’ll soon add pages for the JMLS student-edited journals.

Do you need advice on how to search the library’s databases? Are you seeking tips for researching for your paper course? Need help getting started on your LS assignment?
The reference department has launched a pilot program that allows you to make both virtual and in-person appointments. This means you can get reference help by appointment either by “meeting” online or in person, and you can still get drop-in assistance at the 6th floor reference desk during scheduled times, starting at 11 a.m.
To learn more and to make an appointment, go to the library’s website library.jmls.edu, and click on Research Appointment to get step-by-step instructions.

Are you interested in learning how to apply your education to the real world? In the library’s next installment of the Scholars & Students series, Professor Hugh Mundy presents “Classrooms, Clinics & Courtrooms: A Primer on Putting Your Legal Education to Work.”
Please join us for lunch and a conversation with Prof. Mundy on Tuesday, April 23, at 12:15 pm in Room 1202. This series provides opportunities for students to get to know professors in an informal setting and to learn what they are working on outside the classroom.
Prof. Mundy, who teaches Evidence and Lawyering Skills, came to JMLS last year from the Shepard Broad Law Center at Nova Southeastern University in Florida, where he supervised the Criminal Justice Clinic as an assistant professor. Before that, Mundy was an assistant federal public defender for eight years. He also argued multiple appellate cases in the United States Court of Appeals for the Sixth Circuit.
Lunch will be served. Space is limited. RSVP to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Congratulations to Caryn Suder, writing advisor in the Writing Resource Center, on placing 1st in the library’s 3rd Annual Peeps Diorama Contest. The contest was part of JMLS Library Week activities.

On Thursday, March 14, the John Marshall library catalog will be down for a server upgrade. Library users should expect the catalog to be down the full day, though we hope the disruption will be of shorter duration. Users will not be able to search the catalog, renew books online or place holds on books. Most other library services and resources, including library-provided subscription databases, will not be affected. We’ve scheduled the upgrade during Spring Break to minimize the impact on our students and faculty.
Thank you in advance for your patience.
