Legislative History Resources at the UofL Law Library: ProQuest Congressional and HeinOnline Historical Statutes Databases
Wednesday, October 30, 1:30-2:30 PM, Basement Lab, Law Library
Just in time for Halloween, chocolate candy will be offered to everyone who attends!
Attention Law Review Editors: Professor Metzmeier will be available for personalized research assistance following his presentation.
Researching the legislative history of a statute (or trying to finding older versions of a law) is a necessary but oftendreaded part of legal practice. If an attorney has a case that turns on a disputed passage of a state or federal law, it’s likely that he or she—or the newest law clerk in the office—is doomed to a long day amidst piles of dusty books. Or not. This session will introduce researchers to two valuable services for which the Law Library subscribes that can be used in legislative research: ProQuest Congressional, a professional data service that covers the U.S. Congress, and the state statute databases of HeinOnline, which contain session laws and old statutory codes for all the fifty states.
This is a friendly reminder that there is a new self-service scanner available in the Law Library's Reading Room for students. Please do not use the mailroom Xerox, especially during exam period.
Now that the self-service scanner is available for students to use, the Law Resource Center will no longer provide this service.
If you have a smartphone, CamScanner is a useful app for scanning and managing documents as well as the library's scanner.
September 27, 2013, 1:00pm – 2:00pm
Basement Lab, Law Library
Most of us carry a smartphone everywhere we go. We use apps to get directions to the closest pizza place, check sports scores and update our Facebook status. With the proper apps, your smartphone can also serve as a personal copier; an invisible, portable hard-drive; and—if you can find your files—as a document storage and management device. These apps harness the same built-in functions you use to take pictures of your friend and post them to Instagram, but instead use them in the boring business of legal practice.
Join librarians Virginia Mattingly and Kurt Metzmeier, along with the law school’s Jim Becker, in a short program on how to use the powerful computer in your iPhone or Android to get a little work done--when you are not checking Twitter or playing Candy Crush. The program is informal and there will be plenty of time for questions.
See: "Is that a Copier in Your Pocket? Using Your Smartphone for Smarter Legal Research and Practice" by Kurt Metzmeier (Louisville Bar Briefs, September 2013, p. 18).
The IT Department is pleased to announce the opening of a new Help Desk for law students, located outside the first floor lab in the Law Library. The Help Desk will be staffed from 11:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m., Monday through Friday, beginning Friday, September 20, by Lee McWhorter, a work-study student pursuing a master's degree in Computer Science at the Speed School of Engineering.
Mr. McWhorter has nearly 16 years' private sector experience in information technology and telecommunications, including user support. For law students, Mr. McWhorter will provide first-tier support for:
- Wireless networking (ulsecure)
- Wireless printing
- Lab computing and printing
- Exam4 downloading, installation and basic usage
Students are reminded that the Brandeis School of Law's online Help Desk is open 24 hours a day, seven days a week.
