In response to the disruption caused by COVID-19 UIC JMLS and publishers are providing resources to students so they can continue their studies remotely. Please let the library know what resources you find most helpful and give us any other feedback you have.
The UIC JMLS Library is subscribing to the Q&A Series, Understanding Series, and selected other titles via the LexisNexis Digital Library. The trial LexisNexis Digital Library includes Carolina Academic Press (CAP) study guides such as:
The Understanding Series, e.g., Understanding Torts - Concise treatises on various legal areas of law
The Questions & Answers ( Q&A) series - Sample multiple choice and short answer exam questions with detailed explanatory answers
Study guides in the LexisNexis Digital Library are versions of the study guides published in print by Carolina Academic Press. The books can be downloaded and read offline with the LexisNexis Digital Library App available in the Apple or Google Play app stores. The digital books can also be annotated with saved notes and highlighting.
UIC JMLS has acquired community access to the Wolter Kluwer Online Study Library.
The Study Library consists of numerous digital versions of titles published by Wolter Kluwer/Aspen. These include:
Emanuel Law Outlines series - Black letter law covering material from most casebooks with topic summaries
Emanuel Crunchtime series - Capsule summaries of legal topics, flowcharts, and sample exams with accompanying answers
Examples and Explanations series - This series sets out hypothetical fact patterns. It then poses questions about the fact patterns and follows with detailed and integrated answers as the fact patterns are developed.
Glannon Guides - Detailed explanations of legal concepts with analysis of possible answers to common questions
Inside Series - The series consists of visually oriented study guides. They include roadmaps, charts, diagrams, and checklists to organize topics
The Wolter Kluwer Online Study Library also includes treaties as well as audio and video study aids
Students can access the Wolter Kluwer Online Study Library by using the their normal UIC JMLS credentials. After accessing, students can register to personalize the content, add annotations, and create a personal bookshelf.
Resources on the Wolter Kluwer Online Study Library can also be used off-line on portable devices after downloading the IPublish Reader Central app. Once registered, users can save personal annotations and highlighting made on the study guides.
Need more help? Reference librarians are available to meet with students in one-on-one sessions (or in small groups) to discuss research strategies, recommend relevant resources or review specific topics of legal research.
Contact firstname.lastname@example.org with the subject you're researching and when you would like to meet. A librarian will get back to you to set up an appointment. You can also schedule an appointment on the library homepage by clicking "Schedule an Online Research Appointment." We ask that you request your appointment at least 2 days in advance, but remember that you can always stop by the reference desk for immediate help with a quick research question.
