Hollywood South is a name that New Orleans has easily adopted in the past few years do the large amount of filming now done in the city. As you drive around town you can often see signs such as this:

This is one is actually a little more explanatory than most as they are often adorned with cryptic letters that can become a fun guessing game. To help figure out what is going on in town (and remember many of these movies filming are new so you won't know them) there are also site such as onlocationvacation . A note for those that live close to the school, at times Treme films quite close to the school (on Hurst, I believe).

I will also mention that while you are in school, and perhaps notice an opportunity to need to learn a bit about entertainment law the library does have some print resources (in the KF 4290 area) in addition to the online resources provided by Westlaw and LexisNexis. Maybe you know a budding star, a home owner that has a movie company wanting to rent his home as a set, or just want to know more; use our materials to be prepared.

Loyola Law - Tulane Law Reciprocal Borrowing Agreement

Many student already know about the Loyola-Tulane agreement that we have started this Fall semester but I wanted to make sure and put a plug in for it on the blog and Facebook. Basically, Loyola Law students can check out materials at the Tulane Law Library if a Tulane student could check out said item. Tulane Law students have the same privilege to check out materials at the Loyola Law Library. There are a few clarifications that this post will highlight: 1. Loyola Law students are not admitted to the Tulane Law Library after 7 on weeknights and on the weekends. If Loyola Law students are in the library during those times the checkout reciprocal agreement cannot apply. 2. The agreement basically only applies to physical materials. It does not apply to study rooms, electronic databases, interlibrary loans, or computer lab usage. 3. Fines and checkout period lengths are determined by the library that owns the book/material (regardless of the school you are enrolled in). As always if you have any questions please ask a librarian.
