Library Orientation Guide: TWEN, CALI & Library Catalog

CALI

CALI is the Center for Computer-Assisted Legal Instruction.  CALI provides online access to over 950 interactive tutorials on narrow topics of law.  Some Professors assign CALI lessons as homework. However, CALI lessons are also an excellent way to reinforce concepts learned in class.

Catalog

The library's online catalog can be accessed from the library home page. Click Library Catalog under the heading "Getting Started." Search for materials by keyword, title, author, subject, call number & ISBN. Searching by keyword is recommended unless you are certain of the exact spelling of the other search options. You can also conduct an advanced search

Most library materials may be checked out for 2 weeks. Materials on reserve may only be checked out for 2 hours and must remain in the library. You can request reserve materials at the circulation desk.

Professors sometimes place materials on reserve. To find what your Professor has placed on reserve, look in the catalog under Course Reserves (in the bottom of the box on the right) by Course name or Instructor name .
