Suggestion for an Interesting Read

by Lidia Koelbel 24. April 2013 08:28

May I recommend a short, amusing and educational publication? It is a great poolside read with actual court opinions. The title is Judges Say the Darndest Things. Check its availability in your Law Library by clicking the title.

The sections Fred Shackelford compiled for the book might just clarify concepts for you.

See one of the selected opinions published in rhyme on Westlaw: Fisher v. Lowe, 333 N.W.2d 67 (Mich. Ct. App. 1983) (You will have to log into your Westlaw account). See also Irvin v. Smith, 654 N.E.2d 189 (Ohio 1993) (You will have to log into your Lexis account).

 

The Catalog Isn't Just for Call Numbers

by PSL Law Library 28. February 2013 15:10

 

 

Most patrons think of the Catalog as a resource to find a call number for a book located on a shelf.  While this is still the case the Catalog has so much more to offer.  A simple search on Adoption produced records with links to resources in databases like Lexis, HeinOnline, and Westlaw.  Records for additional electronic formats include websites that are both useful and credible.  Over 50,000 articles were located; an advanced search should be done to narrow results.  Finally, five eBooks and over 60 print books were found. 

The next time you begin a research project you may want to start with the Catalog.  You never know what you’ll find!

June/July '12 Book Displays

After working so hard students deserve to sit back, relax and enjoy a book unrelated to law.  Well, mostly unrelated to law.  Check out the Library's summer book displays!

Fun in the Sun:

 

and, okay, perhaps there should be some learning during the summer. 

Behold, the History Book Display:
