Leaving Valuables Unattended in the Library Can Have Bigger Consequences Than You Think

Please exercise caution with your possessions in the law library, particularly during exam time when you might be more inclined to park your stuff and leave to grab a snack. It's not just the laptop itself that is valuable---it may also be what you have stored on your laptop that exposes you to risk. For a recent, IRL tale, see this article from The Dispatch: Nude-photo Theft Shows Privacy Risk.

If you see anyone or anything suspicious in the law library, please tell someone at the reference or circulation desks as soon as possible. Also keep in mind you are able to lock your valuables to the metal hooks attached to the carrels as a preventative measure.
