If a student has thought to ask for it, chances are it’s available to borrow at an academic library’s circulation desk.

They aren’t expensive and the students are so appreciative to borrow them when we have them.

Stephanie Davidson, Interim Director of the Library at the University of Illinois College of Law, created two fun signs to tell students about all of the different things her library has available to loan.
