On Thursday, May 23, our library catalog vendor will perform a major upgrade to the system that runs GULLiver and GULLiver Discovery, our library catalog systems.

These services will be unavailable:
- Online catalog
- Remote database access
- Paging books within the library
These services will remain uninterrupted:
Sources for finding books while the catalog is offline:
We will post updates to our Twitter account as well as on this page on our site.

If you’ve recently used the Encore catalog interface to search for library materials, you may have noticed a helpful new feature: Direct links to relevant journal and newspaper articles now appear along with books and other resources in your search results.
Synergy, a new software add-on to the Encore search platform, works to retrieve full-text and summaries of individual documents and articles from over 25 of the Law Library’s most popular databases, including HeinOnline, ProQuest Congressional, LexisNexis Academic, ProQuest Newspapers, JSTOR, and LegalTrac.
In most cases, finding a specific law review article in PDF is now as easy as entering the article’s title or citation in the search box at http://discover.ll.georgetown.edu/iii/encore, or in a Keyword search under “Find Books, Journals and e-Resources” on the Law Library homepage at http://www.ll.georgetown.edu.
True to the resource discovery concept behind Encore, Synergy also offers enhanced options for more general article-level research on a topic.
For example, you can find articles related to any Encore search by clicking the Articles link at the top left of the results page. From there, browse and select from the corresponding documents in Hein Core Collections of legal periodicals listed by relevance, or choose another folder at left to see only articles within a certain topic or source category. Click the PDF or Full Text links to open the articles in new browser tabs. (See screenshots below.)
For more information or assistance using the new Encore Synergy feature, please get in touch with a reference librarian. We’ll be happy to help you out at the Wolff or Williams reference desks, by email, Live Help chat, or by phone.

Based upon a suggestion by students in the Spring Survey, we have changed the location codes in the Library Catalog, GULLiver. The codes now identify which library location has the item. Items in the Williams Library start with WMS and Items in the Wolff Library start with INTL. If you're not sure where a location is within the library, simply click on the location code in the catalog to get a map
You'll also soon start seeing the location WMS STACKS. We've decided to call the 3rd through 5th floor of the Library the "stacks." For now, call numbers A through KF 250 are on the 5th floor and KF251 to Z are on the 4th floor. We will be posting signs in the elevators and on each floor as these numbers change. (Remember that we're shifting books around in the library over the next few weeks).
As always, if you can't find what you're looking for, stop by the circulation or reference desks. We're happy to help.

Reductions in Force in Employment Law
covers all the law applicable to "Reductions in Force" (aka downsizing and lay-offs). According to the book description "the analysis is presented in chronological order from the preliminary issues that arise when a workforce reduction is being planned, to the issues arising in implementation and in the wake of the actual reductions. Topics covered run the gamut from discrimination law issues; ERISA and non-ERISA benefit plan issues; tax considerations, including a discussion of Tax Code Section 409A, changing how certain severance arrangements may be taxed to U.S. recipients; to litigation trends."
This book is currently available
at the library. To check out what other books the library has purchased recently, visit our new acquisitions list.
