Like Pictures? Check Out the Library's Flickr Page

Hi all!

 In an effort to show off our library services to you and the library itself (like a proud mama or papa) we introduce to you the Phoenix Law Library's Flickr photostream!

Be sure to check it often as we will be adding more pictures! We're using Picnik to edit the photos (it's free!) to make them a bit more fun!

Any tips or suggestions are encouraged!

Thanks! And have a great rest of your day!

When you don't have a law library that subscribes to Westlaw, LexisNexis, or other databases, Google Scholar is on the path towards being your friend in these times of need.

Read all about Google Scholar's Advanced Search improvement (from Legal Blog Watch).

Blogs Every Law Student Should Monitor

by Ted McClure 23. November 2010 13:09

If you are not monitoring the following blawgs, you are falling behind:

LAW.COM (start at http://www.law.com/jsp/law/rss.jsp)

JURIST - Paper Chase (http://jurist.law.pitt.edu/paperchase/)

SCOTUSBLOG (start at http://www.scotusblog.com/2010/11/scotusblog-4-0-and-the-rss-feeds-feature/)

Except for Paper Chase (which is not terribly burdensome), each of these blawgs permits you to narrow your subscription to the news you need. There may be other sources you need to follow based on the courses you are taking and any research you are involved in (see http://www.blawg.com/ or http://www.abajournal.com/blawgs/by_topic/), but every student needs to follow these three.
