However, the traditional catalog search, also known as “Classic GAVEL”, is always listed first while EDS, also known as “GAVEL & Beyond”, is listed second. Although maintenance has continued for populating EDS with library records on a daily basis, customization for this interface and sharing it with our users has not been prioritized. Before making any decisions related to changing the primary location our users experience when searching the catalog ...

Touring The Lilly Library, Kimberly Mattioli

Articles by Maurer Faculty

What makes students happy? Does anything (short of free food) make law students excited about the law library? I took it as a personal challenge to ...
