We’ve all been counting the days until National Read an Ebook Day today! Well, maybe not. I admit I still prefer a paper book for curling up with a good read. But for research and study, ebooks and databases are great because it’s impossible to carry around all the case books, statute sets, and legal treatises I need in my book bag.
For that reason, the Law Library is happy to announce that we now provide access to the LexisNexis Digital Library. The LexisNexis Digital Library has ebook versions of many legal treatises and code sets you can use right in your browser or download to an ereader, including the Kindle. Quickly and conveniently look up a point of law in a treatise as you study or work on a paper.
Just a few of the titles in the Digital Library:
- Art of Advocacy Series – Appeals (practical analysis of written and oral arguments)
- Cohen’s Handbook of Federal Indian Law
- Corbin on Contracts
- Family Law and Practice
- Fox & Fox: Corporate Acquisitions and Mergers
- Weinstein’s Federal Evidence
These books are also available in Lexis Advance, but for more extensive reading and study, the ebook format is much more user-friendly. The books look like actual books and allow for highlighting and notes. The Digital Library uses the Overdrive platform, which you may have used before to check out books from a public library. You can check out up to ten books at a time and there are unlimited copies available, so no wait lists.
