In order to maximize your opportunities for quiet study, Gould Law Library is open as a study hall almost around the clock through the end of final exams (May 22nd).  These special hours are for Law Center Students ONLY.  There are only two exceptions to this round the clock availability through the end of finals, which are:
  • EVERY Friday from 6:00 p.m. to Saturday morning at 10:00 a.m.:
    • This closure is in observance of the Jewish Sabbath. Saturday access is subject to special conditions:  You may use the 1st floor only; you must have your Touro ID required and use the special access door to enter; and you cannot bring any food.
  • Tuesday, May 14th  at 7:00 p.m. through Friday, May 17th at 8:00 a.m.:

    • In observance of the Jewish holiday of Shavuot, the library will close at 7:00 p.m. on Tuesday, May 14th. It will remain closed entirely until we reopen at 8:00 a.m. on Friday, May 17th.  To learn more, read this blog post.

Please note that library services will not be available during the overnight period and on Saturdays, although a security guard will be on duty.

The entire library (except for the Circulation Desk, the Reference Office, and enclosed study rooms) is now a quiet zone to maximize available study space.  In order to keep the quiet zone as quiet as possible, please take care to remember:

            * No cell phone use is allowed in the library at any time.

            * Conversation should be taken outside the library to the atrium.

            * If you encounter any noise issues, please see a member of the library staff.

We wish you all the best on your exams! For our 1Ls, check out our Study Guide for 1L courses, which includes study guides specifically for your classes on Civil Procedure, Contracts, Torts, and Criminal Law.  You can access it here.

We’ll be back to post again in May.

In the meantime, keep calm and read on.
