LRC Resources for Finals

Finals are quickly approaching, and the LRC can help!  We have plenty of resources for you.

LRC's 1L LibGuide – The LRC has created a LibGuide (subject based webpages) especially for 1L courses!  This is an excellent place to start.

PREVIOUS EXAMS –  The LRC has gone green, so all previous exams can now be found online!  There is a link on the left side of the LRC home page, or you can click here.  Just type in your professors' last name and print out the pdfs.  Keep in mind not professors have exams up.

FLASH CARDS – We have flash cards for Civ Pro (parts 1&2), Community Property, Con Law, Corporations, Crim Law, Crim Pro, Evidence, Federal Income Tax, Future Interests, PR (parts 1 & 2), REal Property, Remedies, UCC Sales, Torts, and Wills and Trusts. Click here to check availability.

STUDY AIDS – Why pay when our reserve room is filled with study aids for you to use?

REFERENCE LIBRARIANS – There are no stupid questions.  The Librarians are here to help you!

LAPTOP LOCKS – Don't leave your belongings unattended!  Unfortunately we do have the occasional theft.  These can be checked out at the Circulation desk.

Wait, how did you do that?

Have you ever spent too much time trying to explain a website or excel function via chat? Wish that you could just show them what you are talking about?  The Jing Project is an excellent solution.  Jing is a free downloadable program that allows you to capture your monitor to share with others using screenshots or video.  Both modes allow you to add audio, text, and/or free-hand drawing to make your instruction clearer.  Once you create your screen capture or video, Jing automatically generates a URL that you can send to your friend.  Simple as that.  So now you can show your classmate exactly how to print Lexis docs to the printers in the LRC, the process you used to find a particular resource, or how you change your FB language to Pirate.

Sound like a good tool for your next group project?  Click here to check it out.

Connect to the LRC on the Go!

It's been a few weeks now since USD has "gone mobile" with their new iphone/ipod app.  It has some pretty cool features like a GPS-enabled campus map and live Torrero scores.  It also gives you access to both library catalogs.  So now you can find out if we have an older version of the textbook you forgot, resources you can use on your paper, or if we  have that interesting book your professor mentioned, all through your phone.  It also has a campus directory so you can directly contact the reference librarians with your research questions.  For more information on the app click here.

You can also check out the San Diego NBC 7/39 News Segment.

Keep an eye out for the blackberry app coming soon.
