I am happy announce that Lexis and Westlaw E-Treatises are now available in the Law Library Catalog. You no longer have to sign into LexisNexis or Westlaw to find out if the treatise you want is available on the database. Conduct a search in the catalog on a subject like criminal law. One of your results will direct you to Criminal Law Advocacy. Open the record, select the link, sign onto LexisNexis and you will be directed to a search screen for Criminal Law Advocacy, which also includes the table of contents. If you already happen to be signed into LexisNexis you will automatically be directed to Criminal Law Advocacy from the catalog record. These steps can also be used for Westlaw titles.

Summer is a popular time to travel and for those of you who haven’t made plans yet it’s not too late. Head to the Law Library and take a look at some of the magazines in the Leisure Reading Collection. This collection is located on the short bookcases between the Arizona and General Collections. Take a look at the latest edition of Travel & Leisure magazine for suggestions on places to visit. Maybe you don’t have the time to travel outside of the state? Peruse the pages of Phoenix magazine or Arizona Highways. You’ll find ideas for weekend getaways and day trips. If nothing catches your eye try looking at past issues located in the general collection.
The Leisure Reading Collection isn’t just for travel buffs. The Law Library has magazines that cover a variety of topics including sports, entertainment, financial news, and current events. So when the semester begins and you want to take a break from it all for just 15 minutes, grab a magazine and relax.

One of our students just back from China reported that China has blocked internet access to our catalog. Awesome!

We now have access to LLMC Digital (Law Library Microform Consortium). This database includes many old, rare, and valuable legal titles. LLMC is a non-profit consortium of law libraries that digitizes old books. Basically it provides digitized books so we don’t need to store/find the old books that fall apart!
View the Blackstone's Commentaries provided by Yale, or the Constitution & By-laws of the Salt River Pima-Maricopa Indian Community from 1941! There are several Native American constitutions and charters, rare Canon and Civil Law titles, and numerous international legal materials.
Check it out here!
Also find it on the databases webpage or from the drop-down menu on the Law Library’s homepage. As with all our library databases, if you're on campus you'll go right to the database. If you're off campus, you'll be asked to log-in with your name and library barcode!

We cannot forget, blawgs have birthdays too! :)
A year ago on June 11th 2010, this blawg began! It didn't have a name, and at the time the law library was still the Information Resources Center. So much has changed in just a year!
There have been 212 posts to the blawg over the course of one year. Let's toast to 212 more blawg posts, and a fantastic summer!
