WE'RE FINISHED!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

We have all survived either our first, or another, set of exams. Congratulations!! I will have a good long purr in everyone's honor.

I don't know about you, but I have earned not one, not several, but many, many catnaps. And I will have ample time, over the next 11 days - starting at 11pm Thursday, December 22 - while the Library is closed. We will reopen rested and refreshed on Tuesday, January 3rd at 9am.

So, enjoy your break and the holidays and . . .
a Happy New Year to all and to all a GOOD NIGHT !

Winter Solstice

Today is the Winter Solstice. Here in the Northern Hemisphere that means it is the shortest day of the year, with the least amount of sunlight. But don't fret. With the school semester almost over, each day will start to get longer and longer. You can say there's a light at teh end of the tunnel even.

Happy Holidays!

Reminder - Access to Other Academic Libraries During a Strike

Most of the law school libraries in the New York City metro area have expressed their willingness to let each others' students into their libraries in order to study for exams during the transit strike. Participating institutions include Columbia, CUNY, Hofstra, NY Law School, Pace, Rutgers, St. John's, Touro, and Cardozo.

2005:Year in Review

It's that time of year again. All of the "best of" lists and "year in review" stories get published now. Almost every day a new one comes out. If you'd like to go to one website that compiles links to many of these lists and stories on one page and continually updates it as they come out, then see 2005 Year in Review.
