New blog post on the HeinOnline blog indicates a new enhancement to the Law Journal Library. Read more about it here.
This will be extremely helpful for those looking to write their AWR paper! You can see the top 100 authors cited, top 100 articles cited, and the top 100 journals cited. Especially helpful is that you can see a list of which articles cite a specific article.

Hi all! Happy Friday!
The Law Library would like your feedback on two databases we have on a trial period from BNA: the Internet Law Resource Center and the Telecommunications Law Resource Center. We only have these on trial for 15 days beginning today, so be sure to test them out soon!
The Internet Law Resource Center covers major topics such as: consumer protection laws, copyright and trademark issues, cryptography, database protection, electronic signatures, domain name disputes, network security, online marketing, privacy, taxation, internet governance, and more!
The Telecommunications Law Resource Center covers major topics such as: broadcasting, wireless communications, cable TV, broadband regulation, retransmission consent, media ownership, satellite services, net neutrality, and more!
Please visit the Law Library's Database Trial Subscriptions wiki to access the trials. You will need to log-in to Juristec to view the wiki (only faculty, staff, and students of PSL can access this).
Thanks! Have a great weekend!
