Content Updates

The Law Journal Library continues to grow with the addition of 8 new journals this month and will continue to grow with the forthcoming addition of thirteen new titles from John Wiley & Sons, Inc. which will be available with the May content release. The Bar Journals Library welcomes a brand new bar journal this month: Winsconsin Lawyer. More than 120 titles were recently added to the Legal Classics Library, nearly 30 titles were added to World Constitutions Illustrated, and nearly 300 hearings were added to U.S. Congressional Documents. This collection now includes more than 65,000 congressional hearings!

In the News

One of our popular print titles, Millennial Leadership in Libraries, was recently reviewed by Lora Johns, Faculty Services Librarian at Yale Law School, in the Law Library Journal. This book, edited by Ashley Krenelka Chase, is not only important for Millennial librarians to have a base of literature from which they can draw information, guidance, or inspiration, but is important for librarians from other generations to understand what Millennial librarians have to offer and how their entree into library leadership will affect the profession.

Coming This Month (2)

A new 8th Edition of National Survey of State Laws (NSSL) will be available in April. This new edition includes eight new chapters, four years of updates for every existing chapter, and an additional 200 pages. NSSL is an indispensable reference work that provides an overall view of some of the most-asked about and controversial legal topics in the United States. This print and online resource is a must-have guide for state-by-state law comparison.

Also coming in April, Hein will offer subscriptions to the Brill | Nijhoff Current Content Collections, which will provide access to the most recent 3 volumes of almost sixty periodicals and yearbooks. As we did previously, we will continue to offer access to the Brill | Nijhoff archival content with a three-year moving wall. As a result, we are now able to offer Brill’s worldwide customer base the option to access the entire history of this highly prestigious list in international law.

Stay tuned for more information in the upcoming weeks!
