Ch-ch-ch-changes! The latest and greatest at Wheat Law Library

Allison ReeveMeet Allison Reeve, the newest librarian.

As we start a new year and a new semester, we are happy to announce a few changes at the Wheat Law Library.

Our new Kansas Supreme Court Research Clinic is under way. Thanks to Associate Director Chris Steadham for spearheading this venture, and a special thanks to Dean Mazza for his support in this process. The clinic is a wonderful opportunity not just for students but for the law school to build a stronger relationship with the court. The students will no doubt learn some incredibly valuable skills while helping the court answer some tough questions. On the schedule are lunch with the Kansas Supreme Court early in the semester and presentations at the end. We are very excited for this new class.

We also have a new hire! Allison Reeve is our new Cataloging and Technical Services Librarian. She graduated from the University of Kansas in 2006 with a bachelor’s in Spanish and anthropology. During her time at KU, she also worked as a circulation student assistant and library assistant at the Wheat Law Library. Allison earned a Master of Information and Library Studies and a Master of Foreign Language and Literature with a concentration in Spanish literature from the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee in May 2011. While living in Milwaukee, she worked at the Golda Meir Library in various positions and as an assistant lecturer in the Spanish department. Allison returns to the Wheat Law Library in her new position and is glad to be back in Lawrence and at KU. Please join us in welcoming Allison.

Welcome back students! We hope you have a fantastic semester!
