L

law school

Second reference both for the Brandeis School of Law and for the building in which it is housed.

lectures

Put the full titles of lectures in quotation marks: The subject of his lecture is "The World of Ambrose Bierce."

Capitalize lecture titles and lecture series titles; do not capitalize preceding adjectives: She delivered the fourth annual Holmes-Hunter Lecture.

legal requirements

Certain statements are required by law to be included on all university publications that are distributed to external audiences. These include the equal opportunity statement and a statement indicating that the publication was printed using state funds. For details and correct wording, go to www.louisville.edu/ur/onpi/style and click on "legal requirements."

libraries

The university library system includes:

  • Ekstrom Library (the main unit)
  • Kornhauser Health Sciences Library
  • Margaret M. Bridwell Art Library
  • Laura Kersey Library of Engineering, Physical Sciences and Technology
  • Dwight Anderson Memorial Music Library
  • University Archives and Records Center
  • Law Library

The system is named UofL Libraries and, therefore, uses a singular verb: UofL Libraries was accepted recently into the Association of College and Research. One way around this somewhat awkward-sounding construction is, when possible, to refer to it as "the UofL library system."

listserv

Avoid using this as a term for an e-mail discussion group as it is the name of a particular software program designed for automating e-mail discussions.
