September 2011 Book Displays

by Lidia Koelbel 6. September 2011 21:19

The Law Library has taken down the popular Feminism Book Display that was up for most of the summer.  In its place we now have the Animal Law Display.  Check out an image of the display below:

Generally, the Library has three displays at any given time.  The second display is the Banned Books Display.

 

Lastly, the Library has a display entitled New Arrivals.  This display features the artwork for the newest arrivals.  Actual books are found in the general collection.  You can find the call number for the book you are interested in reading by searching the Library catalog on the PhoenixLaw website.  Use the catalog enough times and you will become an expert at deciphering the set up of the Library of Congress Cataloguing system.

Lexis and Westlaw E-Treatises Now Available

by PSL Law Library 20. July 2011 15:26

 

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. 

 

 

Leisure Time, Leisure Reading

by PSL Law Library 30. June 2011 15:18

 

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!

New Database: LLMC Digital

by Sarah Prosory 20. June 2011 15:52

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!
