On November 20, 2009, the HLS Library disseminated a ten-question survey to the HLS community. Within days, more than 600 students had responded.
Thank you to everyone for taking the time to share your thoughts. In addition to your many kind words about the library’s services, we heard that students want the library open longer hours, along with more access to the coffee and hot-water station. The library is working on this (but can make no promises).
We also heard that students want additional research instruction in the following areas:
• Administrative Law & Regulatory Research
• Legislative History
• Public & Private International Law
• Law & Social Science Research
• Court and Other Government Documents
• Free (non-subscription) Legal Research Services
The library will use your feedback to plan upcoming research and training initiatives. This spring, for example, the library in partnership with other HLS departments will host a legal research boot camp, where students will receive specialized research instruction on a variety of topics.
