Arizona State College of Law Faculty Scholarship Repository
From the announcement:
"I am pleased to bring to your attention a new service of the Ross-Blakley Law Library at Arizona State University. We have created a web based repository of the Sandra Day O' Connor College of Law faculty’s scholarship.
I know all of us are constantly looking for new ways to serve our law schools, and therefore we bring our repository to your attention in the hope that some of you might find it a useful project to undertake on behalf of your own law library.
The repository is designed to capture the scholarly output of our faculty in a form that features excellent organization, permits subject and key word searching capability, and offers full text access to most publications. Full text access is provided through links to SSRN, HeinOnline, Lexis/Nexis, Westlaw and other electronic services. To help facilitate use of our collections we also provide call number links identifying print holdings of the publications located in ASU Libraries. The repository contains 1,355 articles, 222 book chapters, 200 books, 208 presentations, plus newspaper articles, reports, briefs and blogs.
We are in the process of adding enhancements to the repository. SSRN links are being added for articles and book chapters. We are also going to build Shepardize and Keycite links to entries which will allow one to quickly conduct citation studies of individual articles to survey scholarly impact.
Members of the Ross-Blakley Law Library staff designed and implemented the project completely in-house. The major contributors were Leslie A. Pardo, Access Services Librarian and Faraz Khan, Principal Systems Developer. Special recognition should also go to the following members of the Access Services staff: Serene Rock, Nicole Sandberg and Mariko Bigler. This project was a complex and time consuming endeavor. Countless hours were spent with enormous attention to detail to develop the repository.
We believe it will prove a lasting, well-used and much appreciated resource for our faculty and students, as well as a way for the law school to market the expertise of the faculty.
If you are contemplating your own faculty publications database project and would like to consult with us, please don’t hesitate to let us know. We would be happy to share our experience and/or offer advice to you. You can direct your questions to Leslie A. Pardo, Head of Access Services and Repository Project Manager.
