Non-Traditional Items You Can Borrow From an Ivy League Law School Library

We’ve seen a number of posts about some of the non-traditional items you can borrow from public libraries around the country.

What about other types of libraries? Do they loan these types of items?

Here’s one example of a library that does.

Today, the Lillian Goldman Law Library at the Yale Law School posted a list that included a bunch of non-traditional items students/staff can borrow.

Items Include:

  • Squash Racquets (New)
  • Slankets
  • Umbrellas
  • Soccer Goals

Take a look at the complete list.
