Native American Law Databases on Westlaw

All together there are more than 70 new files have been added to Westlaw, including virtually all Interior Bureau of Indian Affairs (IBIA) cases.

Pardon Our Mess
What's with the pile of books on the second floor? Last weekend an air conditioning component sprung a leak in the ceiling above our bound periodical collection. The tiny pin-sized hole leaked a combination of water and antifreeze and damaged several bound periodicals. A UNL Facilities crew will repair the air conditioning duct work and the ceiling tiles this week. When that's done the damaged books will be replaced and the volumes presently piled on top of the low shelves in the middle of the second floor will be moved back into place.
