The Harvard Law School Library is in the midst of a period of reorganization to align our staff with our present needs and strategic priorities for the future. As part of this process, we have been examining the effectiveness of our various library service points. In the past few years, foot traffic at the circulation and reference desks in the ILS portion of the library has significantly decreased. We are considering relocating staff at these two ILS service points to the Langdell circulation and reference desks areas. As part of this plan, we would then convert this space to something more functional for the ILS community. Please note that this change would only affect the 2nd floor area of Lewis; the ILS collection would remain in its current location in Lewis.
We are hosting a meeting to solicit input on this plan. We intend to discuss ways we can mitigate any impact on service and to hear ideas for alternative uses for the space. The meeting will be held on Wednesday, May 20th from 4-5 p.m. in Pound 100. Please come help us discuss the important topic of how the library supports the study of international and comparative law.
