If you have not added the library's TWEN page to your courses, you can add it as you would any other course by going to the Manage Courses options, clicking on the Add Course option, searching for FAMU Law Library, and then adding the TWEN page to your course listing.
No, you are not crazy. If you are trying to learn something new, go ahead and talk to yourself!
Learning the complexity of the law can feel like you are going bonkers, but do not worry if you start to talk to yourself about the subjects you are trying to learn. Talking to yourself about what you are learning can help you retain details. As you talk to yourself, explain the material to yourself. Explaining a topic to yourself makes you examine a topic from a different angle and can allow you to make connections about ideas involved in the topic you are studying you may not have otherwise.
Do not worry about appearing crazy, when you talk to yourself. Talking to yourself is quite normal and can have benefits beyond helping you remember something, including fighting off feelings of isolation. With a good percentage of the population under stay at home orders of various kinds, a good number of us could gain something from talking to ourselves.
In February, we celebrate Black History Month. If you would like to check out any of these books, please ask the circulation staff to place a hold on it for you, and you will receive it at the end of the month.
Be sure to visit the Library’s Online Repository at http://commons.law.famu.edu/.
The Repository holds a variety of publications and documents that could be useful for projects and research. Alumni, faculty, and student academic publications are available free to access to anyone on the web and cover a wide variety of topics. Through the online repository platform, FAMU College of Law’s Scholarly Commons scholarship has reached thousands of researchers around the world. To see the readership that the College's scholarship has, you can view the daily downloads of the Repository’s holdings through a map located at the bottom of the main page.
The Repository also hosts materials on FAMU College of Law’s founding, including information on the efforts of Virgil Hawkins to enter into the profession of law.
