Our experience has shown that as journal members you will come to rely on a number of the Law Library services that you may not have used extensively as 1Ls.  We've created this guide to help you become familiar with these services, as well as some topic-specific resources for researching science and technology, and their intersection with law.  If you have suggestions as to how we can better meet your needs, please contact Christine Demetros, Assistant Director for Student Learning, at cmdemetr@law.syr.edu

If you have any questions on accessing any materials in the Law Library, please come in and speak with one of our Reference Librarians, or contact us at reference@law.syr.edu or (315) 443-9572.

DON"T WANT TO SCROLL??  Here are the links on this page:   JOST CARD         JOST COPY CARDS        


The JOST Card: Use It, Love It!!

The Law Library keeps a “JOST” card in a binder at the Circulation Desk for members to use when charging items for the use of JOST.  If you are charging an item as part of your F & A assignment, ALWAYS USE THIS CARD!!  Given the long-term nature of journal projects, items charged to this card have a longer circulation period than items charged to individual students.  Possibly more importantly, use of this card will prevent your personal account from being blocked for overdue fines.

To charge to the JOST card, simply bring the item to the Circulation Desk and tell the student or staff member working that you would like to charge it to the JOST card.  We will then look up your name on the masthead, and you’ll be set to go.

This card has been great for the library and the journal, and works to both of our benefits.  However, be sure to note the following:

  • 1. Items checked out on the JOST card MUST remain in the JOST office.
  • 2. The JOST card does NOT work at other campus libraries.
  • 3. The JOST card does NOT work for ILLs.  Our ILL agreements with other libraries require a personal patron name for each item borrowed—no organizations.

JOST Copy Cards

The Law Library does not maintain copy cards for the use of JOST.  If you need to make copies of an item from the Law Library or any campus library, please use the copy cards located in the JOST office.  Be aware that Bird Library uses different copy cards than the Law Library.


We'll Return Those For You!

Although the Law Library will not retrieve books from other campus libraries for you, we will be happy to return them on your behalf!  Just drop them off at the Law Library Circulation Desk and we will see them safely on their way home.

Reminder Of Why You Are Doing All This Work

We [the bench] admire the law review for its scholarship, its accuracy, and, above all, for its excruciating fairness.  We are well aware that the review takes very seriously its role as judge of judges—and to that, we say, more power to you.  By your criticisms, your views, your appraising cases, your tracing the trends, you render the making of “new” law a little easier.  In a real sense, you thus help to keep our system of law an “open” one, ever ready to keep pace with changing social patterns.

Judge Stanley H. Fuld, A Judge Looks at the Law Review, 28 N.Y.U. L. Rev. 915 (1953)
