Welcome to UNH Law on behalf of the library. A quick guide to library services is available here and the library will also be presenting additional information during orientation.
UNH Law has joined the exciting world of LibGuides. Our research guides will be slowly moving to this new format. LibGuides makes it possible to easily integrate library resources and create guides that are much easier to read and print. Right now the library has created guides on:
Many more guides will be coming soon.
And more importantly I've replaced my old dour blog profile pic with a new smiling, dapper, pink tie wearing profile pic. I expect reaction to be both swift and overwhelmingly positve.
Update: As of 7/6/11 it looks like the problem is fixed.
LexisNexis has (inadvertantly?) changed the menu format on law school accounts. Luckily, this is easy to change back. At the top of the screen there is a " Change Menu" option. Simply selected "LEXIS-NEXIS law school" and you'll be back to the same LexisNexis that you know and love.
UNH Law Library is closed Monday, July 4th for Independence Day. Our full summer schedule is available here.
Beginning in July the UNH Law community will have access to Ebsco! While this name sounds like an alien overlord or new soft drink, it is one of the best databases in the world. More information will be available soon on specific resources, access, and search strategies.
Stay tuned for updates!
Recently the Concord Monitor has instituted a pay wall that restricts non-subscribing users to either 5 or 10 article views per month. (10 articles are available upon registering a username/password with the Monitor.) Subscribers to the Monitor have unlimited access. Full details are available here.
However, UNH Law students/faculty/staff continue to have unlimited access to the Concord Monitor via Westlaw. In addition to legal research both Westlaw and LexisNexis contain many news databases. After logging into Westlaw choose "Search for a Database" in the left column. In WestlawNext start typing "Concord Monitor" into the search bar at the top of the screen and select the Monitor.
Both Westlaw and Next contain Monitor articles (but not pictures or advertisements) from December 2007 to today.
Bonus: You can use Westlaw to have the Monitor delivered to you electronically daily. Once in the Monitor database select "today" as the date and the phrase "Concord Monitor"
Run your search and choose "add to WestClip".
Adjust settings in WestClip and enjoy!
