AWR- Beyond Lexis and Westlaw

by PSL Law Library 28. October 2011 16:30

Are you writing an AWR? Are you having trouble finding everything you need in Westlaw and Lexis?  By now, you have probably already exhausted Westlaw and Lexis in your AWR research. 

Come to this workshop to learn about all of the other sources that are available through the library website. Bring your questions! Half of this fifty minute workshop will be a demonstration of research databases, and the other half devoted to answering your specific questions! 

See you Friday, November 11th from 12:00 – 12:50pm in the law library computer lab.

RSVP here.

HeinOnline- New Look & Bar Journals Library

by Sarah Prosory 6. December 2010 15:41

We are pleased to announce a new look to HeinOnline, as well as our subscription addition of the Bar Journals library! (Please note, you must be on campus to view these links automatically. If you're elsewhere, you will be prompted for your name and library barcode to access the databases).

HeinOnline's main page that lists all the "libraries" that the Law Library subscribes to has gone through a face-lift. Not only does it have a cleaner look, but they've added a few new links on behalf of the Phoenix Law Library. Here are some changes:

The Publication Title search box has moved to the upper right side of the screen.

There are now links to the Phoenix School of Law Library's website, catalog, and databases page.

 

 

And the best part... we've just subscribed to the Bar Journals library. This library includes over 70 state and local bar journals and newsletters.

 

Take a break, and check out the new look and new library on HeinOnline!

Phoenix Law Review Now Available Online!

Picture source: PSL Docket 11-19-10

Happy Monday everyone!

Did you know you can access the Phoenix Law Review online? Head over to the Phoenix Law homepage, select Academics, and then select Law Review. Or for direct access click here. Read volumes 1 and 2, and volume 3 which is issued in two parts: Arizona Government and Legal Education. This is a valuable resource, as HeinOnline only has volume 1 of the Phoenix Law Review and Westlaw and LexisNexis do not have the publication at all.

Also, the Phoenix Law Review is having a Spring 2011 Write-On Competition. This competition is open to all students who have completed at least 25 credit hours by the end of summer classes, have at least two semesters of law school left, have completed Lawyering Process 1 & 2, and have a cumulative grade point average of at least 2.50. If you are interested in entering the competition, add the Phoenix Law Review Spring 2011 Write-On Competition TWEN page (must have access to Westlaw and be a PSL student to do so). Details for how to enter will be on the TWEN page at 1:00 PM on December 11, 2010.

Enjoy the short week & read the Phoenix Law Review during the long weekend!
