Fun Times at the Law Library Open House

Yesterday afternoon we held our spring semester open house at the law library. Representatives were on hand from the library along with the Cleveland Law Library, LexisNexis, Westlaw, Casetext, CSU Counseling, CSU Police, and safety services. Thanks to Lexis for the prizes of a Starbucks gift card and points; winners will be notified soon.

There were balloons left over, so we used them to decorate the 1st floor circulation desk and reference office.
