Our list of new books is now updated. Last month, the Law Library received books on a variety of topics, including updated print editions of several treatises that are highlighted on our guide to legal treatises grouped by subject at libguides.law.uci.edu/treatises.
One of these new titles is the 4th edition of LaFave’s Criminal Procedure. Of interest to research buffs: In print, this set’s finding aids (e.g. tables laws and rules grouped by jurisdiction and a 76-page index) take up over half of the last volume. Online in Westlaw, this content seems to be entirely unavailable. As I noted in 2012 about another online legal research provider, librarians and other researchers are still waiting for “beautifully-designed and highly-usable digital titles from legal publishers.” For now, you can come visit us in the law library to browse the index.
Check it out upstairs in the Reading Room at KF 9619 .L34 2015.
The Law Library’s collection is constantly growing as we purchase books and other resources to support the scholarly and clinical work of faculty and students. Please let us know if you have a suggestion for a new book.
