Faculty Resources

I. REMOTE REFERENCE

The Research Desk will be operating virtually and with extended hours, from 9am to 6pm, Monday through Thursday, and 9am to 5pm on Friday, and by appointment. Suffolk Legal Research Librarians will be answering emails during this time and are also available to schedule virtual meetings, which allow for screen sharing, through Zoom. Email us at lawref@suffolk.edu

II. ZOOM SUPPORT

We can help law faculty navigate Zoom – please email the research desk for assistance: lawref@suffolk.edu

You can also check-out the law library’s Zoom cheat sheets and weekly distance education tips.

III. ONLINE CONTENT FOR YOUR COURSES

We can help you gather online content for your courses -- like MCLE Online webinars, podcasts, and e-books; CALI’s interactive exercises; West’s interactive, multi-choice quizzing, study aids, and more. 

This video was created by one of the legal research librarians and will help you understand Zoom, MCLE Online, CALI, and other online resources.  

IV. CASEBOOKS AND OTHER COURSE MATERIALS  

We have talked to our publishers about continuing to provide electronic access to coursebooks for fall classes. Unfortunately, the price quotes we received are prohibitively high, and we will not be able to arrange for e-access.

We are planning to maintain the law library’s print course reserves of required and recommended coursebooks, however, access will be more limited than in the past as we follow guidance on quarantining books between checkouts. We know that some students relied on the law library’s course reserves and understand the difficulties caused by the circulation limitations and lack of digital copies.  As guidance changes we hope to be able to circulate course reserves more frequently, and we will continue to explore possible ways to share materials remotely.

V. WASHINGTON POST & NEW YORK TIMES

As a reminder, if you want to keep up with the news, you have access to the Washington Post through this link (you’ll be prompted for your Suffolk login). 

All Suffolk Law faculty now have free access to the New York Times. If you’d like to set up a NYT account for yourself, please go
