Earthquake aftermath

Although the library sustained no structural damage as a result of the March 1st earthquake, much of our collection was relocated to the floor, or in several cases, to shelves 5-6 feet away. Within minutes of being allowed back into the building, library staff, joined by many students and other law school staff, began returning thousands of books back to the shelving units. It will take an estimated 2-3 weeks to rearrange the collection in its correct call number sequence.
