Some changes are tangible. All of the buildings’ exterior doors have been re-varnished in anticipation of the coming year. The 2006 print edition of the United States Code, long a source which our patrons consulted on a daily basis in the main reading room, is now being replaced by the 2012 edition.

Other changes are less palpable. The “Big 3” of Bloomberg, LexisNexis, and Westlaw all continue to refine their interfaces and search algorithms. Historical databases like HeinOnline, LLMC Digital, The Making of Modern Law, and ProQuest constantly add new content bringing us online access to authenticated primary sources that ...

Biolchini Hall of Law Dedication October 8, 2010

Notre Dame Law School’s completely renovated Biolchini Hall of Law was dedicated on Friday October 8. Fr. John Jenkins blessed the building after a mass of celebration in the Basilica.

The Hall is named in honor of the Biolchini family. A $15 million gift from Robert and his wife Fran — and a number of additional gifts from other generous benefactors — made the renovation possible.

A private reception and dinner was held for all the benefactors after the ceremonies. Among the honored guests and speakers was Associate Justice Samuel Anthony Alito, Jr ...

We are quickly moving toward the end of the fall 2009 semester. For me and my colleagues in the Kresge Law Library, the end of this semester will mean that we are only one semester away from the completion of the renovation of the “old” law school. As the 2010 spring semester ends, we will be starting to move all of our print volumes and microforms into Biolchini Hall. This edition of the Law Library News contains some photographs of the construction site. The Reading Room ceiling has been finished, and I think the final renovated space will be spectacular ...

The beginning of the fall 2009 semester marks another benchmark in the physical transformation of the Notre Dame Law School facility. This will be the only complete academic year without dedicated library study and research space and with just one-quarter of our print collection onsite. For first year students, this will mark some changes in the way that we teach legal research. We continue to strive to balance our teaching of various methods of online access to legal information with locating and using traditional print materials. We survey our students annually to monitor what law firms expect in research methods ...

This second issue of Law Library News highlights the dynamic nature of life and work in the Kresge Law Library. Amongst the many pictures of the construction phases of Eck Hall, you will find helpful material gleaned from professional conferences and staff experiences with the continuing evolution of electronic access to information. To me, though, the focus this summer continues to be on our continual quest to provide excellent service to all of our patrons in our transitional environment. That transitional environment includes the impact of our construction project and the changing nature of information delivery. On the construction side ...

You either have in your hands a printed page or are reading from a screen a copy of volume 1, number 1, of Law Library News and that is entirely appropriate. As the Kresge Law Library continues its physical transformation into the wonderful space that will become its home in Biolchini Hall, those of us who toil here and those of you who benefit from our work on your behalf are also continuing to experience a dramatic transformation in the delivery of legal information. During the 18 months of renovation, two-thirds of the library’s physical collection is located offsite ...
