The Minority Student at UCLA Law School: twelve years of success. This 1979 informational pamphlet provides an overview of the minority program. It gives statistics that “undisputably make UCLA one of the leading centers for minority legal education in the nation, and speak to its institutional commitment to serve all parts of the population.” It discusses the Educational Program, Placement Program, and financial aid.
UCLA School of Law: the building and the law library. This 1953 pamphlet describes the law building in detail, including the types of materials used. It includes a diagram of the original building.
UCLA Law Library Addition & Related Improvements: detailed project program, prepared by UCLA Capital Programs. March 1992, v.1-2. This is an extremely detailed report, which describes the current conditions of the Law Library and Law School before the renovation. It details building systems (electrical, water, etc), staff workflows, descriptions of departments, and services provided to students and faculty. It also contains pictures of proposed changes to the exterior, and floor plans. There are some major differences between the plans proposed in this report, and the layout of the building after renovation. But it could be valuable as a record of services offered, and the state of the building in the early 1990s.
UCLA Law Library administration newsletter. September 29, 1995 – September 29, 1997. This is mostly a very whimsical newsletter containing weekly updates relevant to library staff during construction. Many of the “articles” are purely of entertainment, so this was probably also a means of boosting morale during a very hectic time in the library.
Vol.1 no.1 – “The Law Library has hired a pool of five law students for its new Law Library Research Assistant program.” They are: Cathy Putnam, Lucy Rosas, Jeremy Halpern, Jose Guerrero, and Jovi Orantes.
Vol.2 no.4 – Dean Prager held ground-breaking ceremony for the newly named Hugh and Hazel Darling Law Library on January 23, 1996.
