Dog as a Law Library Resource

Yes—really!   Yale Law Library has announced that, for a three day period, students may borrow a “certified library therapy dog” named Monty to help relieve stress.   In an email to students (printed in New York Magazine), the law school’s librarian has informed students that they may “check out” Monty for “thirty minute periods.”  Visits with Monty will be restricted to a designated, non-public location in the library.

No plans to launch a similar program at GMU—but the library staff will be happy to help you use any of its non-canine resources.
