Technology Tips During Remote Learning

Accessing the Building

Update for Fall 2020: The Law Library will continue to offer virtual service for all. Effective August 17, 2020, The Library building will be limited to current students by card access (students must contact Julie Cahill about access https://www.umassd.edu/directory/jcahill2). Masks and social distancing are required onsite. At this time we are unable to provide onsite service for the public including printing and scanning. We encourage all questions by email, text, chat, and phone. Here is a brief video about the safety measures we have put in place to welcome students back:
