Update on legal research developments

If you're not already subscribing to the Law Librarian Blog as part of your daily feed, you should be.  Each day usually brings at least one story highly relevant to legal writing profs.  Here are a few posts from the last week or so that you may find helpful.

1.  The results of a survey on the law librarian listserv compiling information on how schools handle the teaching of legal research.

2.  West's "Word and Phrases" goes online with an expanded database (contrary to JH's experience, I've found this tool to be extremely helpful in certain, limited instances).

3.  A fascinating video showing how West creates headnotes and key numbers in real time.

4.  New social networking sites for law students.

5.  Fastcase teams with Oregon bar to provide subscription online legal research services- if the trend continues, will law schools have to teach Fastcase in addition to Wexis?

6.  Putting Westlaw and LexisNexis case law digesting systems to the relevancy test.

7.  The latest in librarian haute couture.

Now that you're done reading, go get your research on.

I am the scholarship dude.
