My colleagues in the library have created research guides such as:
- New York Civil Practice: Selected Resources (by Kathleen Darvil)
- New Jersey Legal Resources (by Harold O’Grady)
- Federal Judicial Nominations (by Karen Schneiderman)
- Applying for Grants (by Rosemary Campagna)
These guides describe, and link to, sources ranging from online treatises to RSS feeds.
In conjunction with Maria Okonska, I recently published two guides to help BLS students identify and develop international law-related paper topics:
In these guides, we discuss new tools, including Law.com International News, Oxford Reports on International Law (subscription database), and subject-oriented RSS feeds that describe BLS Library’s recent acquisitions. We also highlight highly useful publications of BLS faculty, such as: Scholarly Writing for Law Students: Seminar Papers, Law Review Notes, and Law Review Competition Papers (Elizabeth Fajans and Mollie Falk); the Information, Law, and the Law of Information blog (Derek Bambauer et al.); and the Interactive Outline of the Law of War (Judge Evan Wallach).
We hope that you will use our guides and will provide authors with comments. When Brooklyn Law School unveils its portal in Fall 2009, there will be links to these web guides on the BLS Library’s portal page.
