Save Paper! Print Just the Pages You Need From that PDF

How to Print Selected Pages of a PDF:

  1. Open the PDF in Chrome (right-click on the PDF in File Explorer and select Open With… Google Chrome). [Note: You need Google Chrome installed for this to work]
  2. Click the printer icon on the toolbar below (see fig. 1).

Why Take Notes in Lectures?

By Roberta WoodsReference and Instructional Services Librarian

Intending to help new students in law school, a new
LibGuide on the Law Library site offers brief explanations about five note taking methods or systems that have some track record when it comes to learning, which takes up the other part of the LibGuide. There is evidence to support note taking in lectures. Students have a 50% chance of recalling noted information on a test. Non-noted information gives the student only a 15% chance of recalling the information on a test (Aiken, Thomas, Shennum, 1975).

Did you ever wonder about what the professor said that you didn’t note? Are omissions important or are they of no consequence? In the “Omissions in Notes,” several clues are listed about what you’re not including in your notes.

Each note taking method has a best use depending on the circumstance. You are welcome and encouraged to use them all.

Any system is better than none. Think on paper.

Welcome Back, New and Returning Students

Welcome entering students to the William S. Richardson Law School ohana. Welcome back returning students and faculty members to your beloved Law School. When you come by the law library check out the “Hall of Faces” to meet our proud William S. Richardson lawyers. Eventually you will be one of them. Because of the library renovation, the pictures were taken down from the wall for a while, but they are coming back to us.

For entering students, please highlight your calendars to join a 40-min library tour on Tuesday, 8/15 starting from 8 am. You will have a lot of fun in finding law school history display, study aids to assist you in deepening the understanding of the legal discourse, cool stuff to make your study easy and enjoyable, and gaining 24/7 library access to make the law library part of your lives. Good luck in your studies and a successful academic year! We are looking forward to seeing you all in the renewed (face lifted) law library.

Meet Our New Librarian!

By Catherine Bye, Technical Services/Acquisitions Librarian


The Law Library is happy to report that a new Reference and Instructional Services Librarian has joined our Law School ʻohana this summer! Cory Lenz will be teaching first-year legal research as well as a course in scholarly research. Before joining us, Cory worked as the Research Instruction and Writing Process Librarian at the Charlotte School of Law in North Carolina. Additional information about his background and how to contact him can be found here.

For enquiring minds, however, Law Librarianship was not his number one career plan (although it was a very close second!). Before getting his dual degrees in Law School and Library Science, Cory made a living for 15 years as a certified personal trainer, an activity with which he is still active today. What he most enjoys about being a personal trainer is seeing his clients improve and grow – just like his students!

His work as a personal trainer was a way for him to pay the bills while endeavoring to become a TV and film writer. He hoped to catch a break while living in Los Angeles where he also worked at the Kennedy/Marshall Company, a husband-wife film-production company based in Santa Monica, California. Through his work at Kennedy/Marshall Cory rubbed elbows with Tom Hanks, Goldie Hawn and Samuel L. Jackson.

Aside from his library and personal training activities, Cory also enjoys playing tennis, hiking, creative writing, reading, and checking out estate sales. When you have time, come by to welcome Cory and be sure to ask about his wooden hanger collection!
