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.

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


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

Workshop on Reporters and Digests at ONC this week

by Ted McClure 12. September 2011 11:09

To learn about how opinions are published and how to find the opinions you need, come to our Library workshop this week. Case law is at the heart of the common law system. For 900 years, judges in England and then America have created law by adjusting existing law to novel facts. Published judicial opinions coupled with the doctrine of stare decisis guide further application of the common law and provide stability in the legal system.
