|iPads Now Available for Check Out
Law Library now has two iPads that students can check out. We have
loaded them with a variety of legal apps so students can try out
the mobile versions of familiar tools like Lexis Advance, Westlaw Next,
and Hein Online, and learn about new utilities like LawStack, Oyez
Today, and Rate Driver. The devices also have several productivity apps
such as GoodReader, Office2 HD, and DropBox.
We hope that students who try out the iPads will bring suggestions of additional apps that we can make available.
[Curious about productivity apps? Be sure to attend this week's Lunch-n-Learn!]
|New Resource: Supreme Court Nominations Database

attempts at confirmation, and researchers can browse the materials by
Justice, resource title, or by specific document.
Available documents include transcripts of the entire confirmation
hearing, judiciary committee hearings, House and Senate reports, law
review articles on the nominations of justices, pre-nomination
speculation, memoranda on the nomination, and much more.
