LED Screens available in all Study Rooms
The Center recently upgraded and improved the technology resources available in the Study Rooms. We are excited to share the details of the numerous upgrades in the facilities available to Duquesne Law students and faculty. Please do not hesitate to contact us, or consult your Personal Law Librarian (PLL) about these powerful new assets available to you. Collaborative learning environments are at the forefront of higher education IT resources. The Center strives to provide students and faculty with these leading edge tools to enhance your law school scholarship, and foster valuable presentation experience that can be utilized in the workplace. The Center is promoting collaborative learning technology by installing 55" LED high definition monitors, which are now available in each of the Study Rooms. The recent advancements reported in DuqLawWire are the product of much planning and work by DCLI and the Law School IT Department.
The IT Department placed some cables on reserve to be used with the new monitors installed in the study room. Students can use the cables to connect their laptop, iPad, iPhone, or any other device that has an HMDI connection. Barcodes have been attached to each cable, and they can be checked-out from the DCLI Service Center Desk, like a study room key, for two hour periods. Our Student Assistants will be happy to retrieve the cables, which are located in the Reserve Room, clearly labeled "HDMI CABLES".

- Collaboration tables accompany the HD monitors and allow students to share the screen and collaborate on group projects
- IT Cables to be checked-out from Service Center Desk for use with the HD Monitors in the Study Rooms
Broughton Lab added to Collaborative Study Rooms
Broughton Lab, located in Room G-1 or the Center, can also be used for collaborative study purposes and meetings. The Center has been updated with new computers on all three floors of the Law Library, including Broughton Lab on the Ground Floor, and Room 118. All computers are equipped with Windows 7 and Microsoft Office 2013.

New Conference Room in DCLI
The Center is also pleased to announce the renovation of Room G-1A, which is now a Collaborative Learning Space, can be used for seminars, conferences, or as a Study Room. Please inquire at the Service Center Desk if you would like to use this room.
High Speed Document Scanner Available in the Center
Another important development is the new document scanner from Scannx, located on the 2nd floor of the Center, near the copiers. Please try scanning files, instead of photocopying. The device is a much better alternative to traditional scanners. We encourage students and faculty to give it a try. The scanner allows for quick and easy transfer from print to electronic format, and includes an email application for convenient sharing among you and your colleagues.

Essential Library Service for Students - Personal Law Librarian (PLL)
The Center provides each student a Personal Law Librarian (PLL) to serve as point of contact, answer any questions about the library, as well as offer guidance in accessing the collections, services, and facilities available to Duquesne law students. The Center recognizes the need for personal attention for the law students, and the PLL-student partnership accommodates this important academic need by offering superior service, unmatched by any other institution. Your PLL will contact you via email soon. Please take this opportunity to arrange a meeting or phone conversation to discuss your academic legal information needs, and maximize the resources and services available to you through the Center.
