Resources for Developing Course Supplements

Resources for Developing Course Supplements

Faculty can supplement other teaching materials by incorporating digital materials or links to materials in a course packet that can be linked from their Blackboard page.  Bloomberg Law, Lexis, Westlaw and HeinOnline all make it easy to copy links to their materials.  The library collection also includes a growing number of e-books that can be easily linked from the supplements. If you will be scanning large portions of books, please check copyright clearance and compliance restrictions.

The list of databases that NYLS subscribes to is here in our Electronic Resources guide.  In addition, below are some additional web resources that contain an array legal information.
