Law Library News for Jan. 1, 2007
Cheryl Nyberg, editor.
Here are some quick reminders about a few of the Law Library’s services:
The reference cooks are sifting through recipes for next quarter’s Library Lifesaver offerings. We want to know what you—our customers—would like to see on the menu.
Over the last three months, we have treated you to tasty tidbits of information on the Library catalog, selected legal research databases, Google, Word, exams, finding paper topics, and CALI. These are some of the treats that we wanted to share with you.
Now it is your turn! What would you like? Design your own menu.
Perhaps you would like to order some comfort food (a review of Lexis or Westlaw basics) or an exotic delicacy (English language translations of foreign cases).
Maybe you would like to request an appetizer (an introduction to an interdisciplinary database) or a seven-course meal (a series of short sessions exploring Bluebook citation rules).
We are here to slake your thirst for knowledge! Send your suggestions to lawrefst@u.
Teacher, why is The Bluebook blue?
Is The Bluebook related to the Government Accountability Office blue-cover reports, state-issued blue books, or the National Reporter System blue books? What is the Blue Book that tax researchers consult?
What are white papers?
What legal relevance do books of green, orange, red, maroon, and beige hold?
Look for answers to these and other research-tinted questions in this new occasional series: Color My (Research) World. Discover how colorful legal research can be and pick up some trivia to amaze and astound your friends.
