Effective Monday, March 28, 2022

Effective Monday, March 28, 2022, the Social Law Library will continue return to more normal operations for Members who may wish to conduct routine research in the Library. As itemized below, the Library’s revised operating procedures for Members are in accord with the Supreme Judicial Court’s recent orders that make it easier to enter Massachusetts Courthouses and begin resuming pre-pandemic, “in-person business.” See press release and linked orders:

Members wishing to enter the John Adams Courthouse to conduct research in the Library should note the following:

• Members may conduct research in the Library Monday through Friday from 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. All traditional reference and research services will be available to Members.

• Although an appointment to use the Library is no longer required, all Members must pass through the security screening at the entrance of the Courthouse to visit the Library.
