The library has a number of study aids available, for students who have suddenly realized that they have no idea what an interpleader action is (hint: not something from Star Trek).
Biddle subscribes to the following series:
- LexisNexis “Understanding” series
- West’s “Concepts and Insights” and “Nutshells“ and other hornbook titles
- Wolters Kluwer’s “Examples and Explanations.”
You can search for specific titles in LOLA, the library catalog. But this can be a little cumbersome, if you just want to see all of the library’s study aids on torts, for example.
A faster way to locate the study aids is to browse the shelves in the Reserve Reading Room, located through the glass and wood door to the left, just beyond the library exit.
As you enter the room, you will see books on the shelves to your right, wrapping around the corner to another set of shelves. All of the current editions of study aids are located here, arranged by subject. These materials cannot be taken from the Reserve Reading Room. However, you can check the title in LOLA to see if there is an earlier edition available in Biddle’s open stacks or Lewis (ask at Circulation) that you can check out.
Don’t forget some other study tools available!
