Classroom Resources

Research Lectures
Librarians can provide your classes with instruction in specialized areas of research. We can also provide independent study students with one-on-one or group training. When teaching research strategies for a particular subject area, we focus on both online and print sources found in the Law Library and elsewhere. We can work with you to develop assignments related to this instruction. Please make arrangements early in your course planning. To schedule a lecture, contact Steven Probst.

Audio/Visual Services
Audio/Visual requests are no longer coordinated by the Law Library, but can instead be emailed to Donna Patterson, Associate Director of Technology. You may also contact Donna by telephone at extension7843 or in person at Office #262.

Audio/Visual requests should be made no later than 48 hours before the equipment is needed and should include your name, the date and time the equipment is needed, and the name of the classroom where the equipment will be used.

Library Tours
Librarians provide individual and group tours of the Law Library. Tours are customized to the needs of the person or group taking the tour. Tours can be very brief or comprehensive and detailed; they can be tailored to the needs of you and your research assistants or to an entire class. Advance notice is needed. Contact Emily Janoski-Haehlen for arrangements.

Computer-Assisted Legal Instruction (CALI)
The Law Library provides access to all of the exercises offered by CALI. They can be accessed from all computers in the law school and also from off campus ( The first time you access the site, you will be asked to create your own password. For the current authorization code needed to access CALI or for other assistance, contact Emily Janoski-Haehlen or Mike Bushbaum.

Online Class Reserve & Exam Collection

General Reserve Collection
The general reserve collection is composed of items of high use or importance. It includes unbound periodicals as well as hornbooks, treatises, form books, the Indiana Code, and Indiana practice materials. Reserve items are available at the Circulation Desk.

Course Reserves
Faculty members may place items on reserve for a specific class. These items may be from the Law Library collection, or they may be from the faculty member’s own collection, in which case they are returned to the faculty member at the end of the semester. Items formerly on reserve as photocopies are now scanned and placed in PDF format on the Law Library’s E-reserve website. The username is always “reserve.” The password changes each semester.

You may place items on reserve at the Circulation Desk. Please allow 72 hours (or 72 hours plus the weekend if you bring the item in on a Friday) for your item to become part of the reserve collection.

At the end of the semester, course reserves are returned to library shelves and faculty mailboxes. This includes any material that was placed on electronic reserve.
