GBA Foundation awards grant to Elon Law Library

As a philanthropic arm of the legal community, the Greensboro Bar Association Foundation’s gift to Elon Law will help support the school’s expansive print and digital collections, including a Westlaw public access terminal.

The Greensboro Bar Association Foundation, Inc. has awarded a grant in support of the Elon Law Library’s extensive collection of materials accessible to the legal community and the public.

The Elon Law Library aims to meet the educational and research needs of faculty, staff and students, and to serve as a source of legal information for all other visitors. Its resources include all North Carolina primary and secondary source materials, from case law to regulations to treatises published by major academic presses.

The Elon Law Library also enjoys expanded online access to Westlaw that librarians make available to students, faculty, and members of the Greensboro Bar Association. Hundreds of students and building guests visit the library on an average weekday day during the academic year.

“I’m incredibly thankful for the support of the Greensboro Bar Association Foundation,” said Associate Dean Kate McLeod, who oversees the Elon Law Library and the law school’s Information Services. “Our library’s relationship with the Greensboro legal community is important to our success as a law school, and in making this gift, I believe the foundation is not only strengthening our school, but strategically investing in the professional success of its members.”

The Elon Law Library is open to Greensboro Bar Association members during the following times:

Monday-Thursday: 7:15 a.m. – Midnight
Friday: 7:15 a.m. – 9 p.m.
Saturday: 9 a.m. – 6 p.m.
