Using CALI From TWEN Courses

by Sarah Prosory 10. October 2011 12:07

Hello students!

Your professors may have recommended CALI lessons within your TWEN courses. Many students have noted some issues when using CALI from TWEN. The thing to remember is that you need to login to CALI once you arrive at the CALI website to access the lesson. TWEN does not have the same login as CALI. TWEN does not share who you are with CALI. So you need to follow 3 simple steps:

1. Within your TWEN course, choose the CALI lesson you'd like to take:

 

 

2. Login to CALI. (Don't have a CALI account? You'll need the student code found here. Please call or email the reference desk if you need help: 602-682-6898 or library@phoenixlaw.edu).

 

3. Once you login, you'll see the green play button. Choose the button to access the lesson.

Legislative Research by State

by Sarah Prosory 22. July 2011 15:29

A former law librarian has taken up the task of posting legislative research information for each of the 50 states to her blog, a project she calls 50 States in 50 Weeks. Each week is another state, in alphabetical order of course! Week three was her post on Arizona legislative research. This is the 9th week and her post is on Florida legislative research.

Hat tip to Harvard Law School Library's Et Seq. blog for leading us to this great resource!

Some Friday fun..the states in alphabetical order! That reminds me of the song, Fifty Nifty United States! How many of you can sing the 50 States song? Get to about 45 seconds on the video below, where they begin: "Alabama, Alaska, Arizona, Arkansas..."
