The Library would like to announce the publication of the Arizona Legal Research Guide. This newest guide is a compilation of numerous helpful resources for different types of research on Arizona's laws, cases, regulations, and practice. The guide includes free resources proven to be very useful in real practice when costly subscription databases are no longer readily available.
There is also historical information and links to other compilations of resources expanding the materials available to you. Take a look for yourself. You can access the guide here: http://researchguides.phoenixlaw.edu/ArizonaLegalResearch
Alison Ewing's expertise in Arizona legal research was crucial to the composition of this guide.

The latest printing technology is here in the form of a 3D printer. The law must keep up with technology advancing so quickly.
For an examination of issues involving 3D printers and copyright law see Edward Lee, Digital Originality, 14 Vanderbilt Journal of Entertainment & Technology Law 919 (2012), http://ssrn.com/abstract=2128799.
See also the New York Times article on the legal issues that can potentially arise from the use of 3D printers. Nick Bilton, Disruptions: The 3-D Printing Free-for-All, N.Y. Times, Nov. 13, 2011, http://bits.blogs.nytimes.com/2011/11/13/disruptions-the-3-d-printing-free-for-all/?smid=pl-share.
An additional issue involve the hot topic of gun control. See the New York Times article on the University of Texas law student. The ATF would like to keep an eye on individuals who print guns with 3D printers - if it could. Nick Bilton, Disruptions: With a 3-D Printer, Building a Gun With the Push of a Button, N.Y. Times, Oct. 12, 2012, http://bits.blogs.nytimes.com/2012/10/07/with-a-3-d-printer-building-a-gun-at-home/?smid=pl-share.
