New York Times Image Edition
The Library has added the New York Times Image Edition to its collection. This resource provides an exact digital reproduction of current and recent print editions of the Times. All pages, including advertising, photos and graphics, are included. The New York Times Image Edition can be accessed here from networked computers in Drinko Hall.
Copyright and Fair Use Web Site
The Copyright & Fair Use website from Stanford University Libraries provides an overview of basic copyright and fair use information, including discussion of issues such as acquiring copyright permission, public domain and academic use of copyrighted materials. The web site also links to relevant primary law, including caselaw and pending legislation.
Proceedings of the Old Bailey
The "Old Bailey" was London's felony court. The Proceedings of the Old Bailey Online is "[a] fully searchable online edition of the largest body of texts detailing the lives of non-elite people ever published, containing accounts of over 100,000 criminal trials held at London's central criminal court." The resource is a searchable, digitized collection of Old Bailey Proceedings from 1675-1834.
Survey of Law Student Use of Faculty Podcasts
The 2007 CALI Legal Education Podcast survey results are available. CALI surveyed law students, between March and May of 2007, who took courses in which faculty had podcast lectures as part of the Legal Education Podcasting Project.
Economist Online Style Guide
The Economist has a nice Online Style Guide. The guide is obviously intended for use by journalists, but it's helpful for anyone who needs a little assistance avoiding common solecisms and other writing pitfalls.
