Welcome Back!!

Welcome back, everyone, for another exciting term! Classes started today for the Spring 2011 Term at the University of Houston Law Center, and it's great to see so many students using the Library already.

As a reminder, students have access to the Library 24/7 via the Student Offices. Although we won't be around 24/7, reference librarians are available most of the time that the Library is open to the public, and we are eager to assist students and faculty with their research needs.

So, welcome back!
