New Student Library Orientation: Class Support

This guide is designed to help new students through the first few weeks at UNMSOL by introducing them to the Law Library's resources, services, and policies.

Course Reserves

Professors often put required textbooks as well as other course materials on course reserve. To see what materials a professor has placed on reserve, ask at the Circulation Desk or search the library catalog.

Course reserve items may be checked out for two hours or kept overnight if checked out within two hours of closing and returned within one hour after the Library opens the next morning. A valid UNM ID is all that is needed to check out course reserves.

Academic Support

Study aids are materials often used by law students to better understand the cases and key concepts covered in their casebooks.

West Study Aids provide online access to the full text of series like Nutshells, hornbooks, Gilbert Law Summaries, and Blackletter Outlines as well as guides to law school success and starting a legal career.

The print academic support collection is located in the bookcases across from the Reference Desk. It contains Nutshells, Examples and Explanations, and hornbooks. Academic support items may be checked out for two hours, but may be kept overnight if checked out within two hours of closing and returned within one hour after the Library opens the next morning.
