Beginning Monday, October 1, you may pick up your USB drive at the Law Library Circulation Desk anytime the library is open. You must show your Cardinal Card in order to receive the drive. What's the catch? Read the Computer Exam Procedures page. Even if you don't plan to take your exams on computer, you may still pick up a USB drive.
