This Day In Daily History

New Law Library off-limits to non-Law students

Oct. 14, 1981 – With the construction of the University Law School’s new underground library, the Allan F. and Alene Smith Law Library Addition, new constraints on use by University students arose. Undergraduates and non-Law graduate students were no longer allowed to study in the new building.

Beverly Pooley, director of the Law Library, emphasized the need for Law students to use the Law Library’s resources on a daily basis without being interrupted by non-Law students.

Pooley said the presence of non-Law students in the old Law Library often precluded Law students from performing their work.

“It was like a zoo down there,” Law student Ron Klein said of the library when populated with undergraduates.

Nonetheless, the restriction did not prevent non-Law students from entering the new facility altogether. With a professor’s note or a visitor’s pass, other students would be able to conduct research or peruse the library’s legal resources.

Law students seemed to appreciate this new rule.

“It seems fair this area should be restricted to Law students, thereby providing the necessary space and atmosphere to carry out the important part of their curriculum,” said first-year Law student Dave Victor.

Law students said the library was not just a place to study, but also a vital resource place for their law school careers.
