Library Resources for Michigan Law Students: Gadgets and Equipment

The Law Library is Wired to Help

Whether you're reading a book or typing a paper, you will find all kinds of devices and tools at the ready in the Library.

Check out Tech at the Information Desk

The Information Desk in the core of Sub-1 does way more than check out library books. It is also your destination for electronic equipment, course reserves, study aids and more.

Never Fear a Low Battery

Check out chargers at the Information Desk. We have several styles of phone-charging USB cables, laptop chargers, tablet chargers, and wall adapters.

Enhance Your Study Space

Sometimes it just takes an extra piece of equipment to settle into your best learning environment. 

  • Give your neck a rest with laptop stands and book stands.
  • Take better notes with Bluetooth and wired keyboards.
  • Take a stand with Varidesk sit-stand desk converters.
  • Control your auditory environment with disposable earplugs.

Find these gadgets and more at the Information Desk.
