Countdown to Finals Week

November 21, 2006Duke Law News

The fall semester is almost over! In addition to much-anticipated holidays and much-dreaded exams, November and December will also bring a few important changes in the Law Library's schedule. The Library will close for the Thanksgiving holiday at 5 p.m. on Wednesday, November 22. The Library will resume regular staffing hours, including reference service, on Sunday, November 26. Over the break, members of the Duke Law community will continue to have 24-hour access to the Law School building and the Law Library entrance with a valid DukeCard. The last day of classes is Friday, December 1. During the subsequent reading week and examination period, the Library doors and the Circulation Desk will maintain regular hours, but the reference librarians will be available only on Mondays, Fridays between 8 a.m. and 5 p.m. There will be no evening or weekend reference service during exams or the winter break, but don't worry, you can e-mail the Reference Desk your questions at, and the staff will get back to you as soon as possible. Evening and weekend hours will resume at the beginning of the spring 2007 semester, Wednesday, January 10. This issue of D.U.L.L. News will focus on resources, both serious and frivolous, to help you get through this hectic time of year.

    A forlorn, largely vacant shopping center on 10 acres of asphalt in central Durham seems like an unlikely place for innovation. But Ann Woodward, executive director of the nonprofit Scrap Exchange, imagines transforming this site into a creative reuse arts district (the “RAD”).  This district, an inventive mix of nonprofits, cooperatives and for-profit companies, would not only ensure that the Lakewood Shopping Center becomes a profitable asset, but would also be the catalyst for the revitalization of the surrounding neighborhood.
