The Law School Library in Myron Taylor Hall opened in 1930. Its natural wood paneling, desk lamps, and plush carpeting make it one of the quietest, most formal libraries on campus. Law School professors investigate such topics as racism and the death penalty, immigration law, and the influence of marriage incentives on welfare reform.
Other libraries organized around special interests include Veterinary Medicine, Africana, Music and Dance, and Entomology. The Ornithology Lab's natural sounds library holds recordings of elephants, whales, and thousands of birds, including extinct species no longer heard in the wild.
