Hone Your CALR Skills

If you would like to hone your Computer Assisted Legal Research (CALR) skills, please take advantage of one or more of the following opportunities offered by the professional staff of the Mendik Library:

1.  Come to the Reference Desk (4th floor of 40 Worth Street) with your questions. Our new dual monitor makes it easy for you to follow along with the librarian while he or she demonstrates the best way to handle your research problem.

2.  Get together with two or three other students and e-mail the Reference Desk (reference@nyls.edu) to request a personalized training session at a time mutually agreeable to your group and to the librarian assigned to help you.

3.  Register to attend a CALR Open House in the Library Training Room (4th floor of 40 Worth / Room 0403). The Open House is not structured – instead, the librarian will be happy to help with any questions or problems you have regarding CALR. While your participation in an Open House is purely voluntary, advance registration is required. (If no one has registered by the date of a session, the Open House will be cancelled.) To Register: Send an e-mail to reference@nyls.edu with the date/time of the Open House you plan on attending:

Thursday, February 22nd (5:00 – 6:00)
Friday, February 23rd (1:00 – 2:00)
Friday, February 23rd (5:00 – 6:00)
Saturday, February 24th (3:00 – 4:00)
Sunday, February 25th (2:00 – 3:00)

First Year Students who did not attend CALR II training earlier in the semester should be aware that attending an Open House will not fulfill that Writing Program requirement.
