Librarians are able to provide instructional support in a variety of ways. For specific questions, or more information, please contact your Library Liaison or the Law Library Reference Desk at firstname.lastname@example.org or 5-7205.
Below are links to:
TWEN ("The West Education Network") and Sakai are course management software programs which are available to Loyola Law faculty. Both types of courseware are useful for communicating with students and delivering portions of your course content securely over the Web. TWEN is accessible through Westlaw, and West has created a helpful "Administrator's Guide to TWEN" which is available online as a PDF file. Sakai is accessible through the "Links" menu at the top of any Loyola Law School Web page, or directly at https://sakai.luc.edu/ (log in with your Loyola ID and password). Help with Sakai is available at http://luc.edu/itrs/teachingwithtechnology/sakai/sakai-fac-tutorials.shtml. If you have additional questions that these online resources don't answer, please feel free to contact your library liaison.
Faculty can post prior year exams on the "Law Library Services" TWEN course page, where their use is limited to current Loyola students on a secure, password-protected site, hosted by Westlaw. To access the exam archive, add the "Law Library Services" page to your TWEN courses by clicking on the "Add a Course" button on the TWEN My Courses page. To add exams to your archive, forward a copy in Word or PDF format to Lucy Robbins, the Library's Head of Access Services, email@example.com.
Reference librarians can provide customized classroom presentations or research handouts in topical areas to fit your class needs. If you would like a librarian to present to your class, please use the form at http://www.luc.edu/law_library/forms/instruct.html . Please allow sufficient time for the library to prepare presentations and handouts.
The Center for Computer-Assisted Legal Instruction (CALI) is a non-profit consortium of law schools that develops online exercises or "lessons" which can be used by faculty to supplement their courses, or by students to practice their legal knowledge. Please contact your Library Liaison to obtain Loyola's authorization code so that you can create a user account at http://www.cali.org/.
To place items on course reserve, please submit your name, the class name/number and the list of books to you want on reserve. This information can be dropped off at the circulation desk to the attention of Lucy Robbins or emailed directly to her at firstname.lastname@example.org. You may place your own personal copy on reserve by bringing the book directly to the library or routing it through the library’s mail box, Attn: Lucy Robbins. Please note, reserve requests made outside of working hours will be processed the next working day.
Unless otherwise specified by faculty, the following are semester reserve standards:
The library will accommodate different lending times and/or different loan restrictions, and will maintain standing reserve lists if requested by faculty.
*Please note that the library is not responsible for lost or damaged personal items placed on reserves. It is the responsibility of the faculty to adhere to the copyright guidelines. More information about guidelines can be found at the LUC web page "Copyright Information as Applied to Library Reserves," http://www.luc.edu/copyright/information.shtml
Library Research Guides
The Law Library's reference librarians have developed numerous topical research guides containing web links to various resources available on the Law Library homepage at the LibGuides link, http://lawlibguides.luc.edu/. Please contact your library liaison if you would like a research guide created on a topic of interest to you.
