Two library Faculty Workshops taught: on new Westlaw KeyCite service (August 11) and Lexis’ Virtual Classroom for web site production (April 15) Legal Research Courses. Practice Training 1 taught by two librarians in Fall 1997 (because of staff shortage; normally taught by four), including seven class meetings each week, and highly effective at teaching basics and integrated electronic strategies; new plans made for Legal Methods course, with important improvements integrating research and writing experience; developed new course on Advanced Legal Research, to be offered as seminar in Spring 1999 Student Services.

A small sample of interesting questions included consulting for the French Conseil d’Etat on the extradition of a U.S. citizen who might be subject to the death penalty in Arizona; several requests about our collection of Liberian law; requests for our transcripts of the Scottsboro trial; helping an undergraduate class research Talmudic law in various countries of the world; researching copyright permissions in India and Hong Kong for a professor’s new book; finding large color maps of voting district realignments, found in our collection of original U.S. Supreme Court Records and Briefs (not available online or on fiche); use of our Bennett collection of state statutes, a unique historical collection, by a Cornell government professor researching voting statutes and poll taxes in several states; research on the laws of Kenya for an attorney’s web project; use of Ariel for requests from England; providing a federal commission reviewing RICO with unique RICO information compiled in the Law School; the recent reform of French nationality law; gathering materials on international arbitration; downloading documents from web sites for faculty, such as the recent ILO Child Labor Law report; the transferability of legal qualifications within the European Union, and African human rights and the relationship between Sierra Leone and Nigeria Library Publications.
