"Nota Bene" means "note this well" or "take particular notice." We at the O'Quinn Law Library will be posting tips on legal research techniques and resources, developments in the world of legal information, happenings at the Law Library, and legal news reports that deserve your particular attention. We look forward to sharing our thoughts and findings and to hearing from you.

iTunes U and YouTubeEDU

Many people may not know that two websites often thought of as places to turn for entertainment, iTunes and YouTube, also provide access to educational content. iTunes U allows educational institutions to distribute content such as lectures, language lessons, and tours to students, and the general public, for free. Currently more than 800 universities, including the University of Houston, participate, with about half allowing public access to their content. More information about the University of Houston’s iTunes U website can be found here.

YouTubeEDU is a section of the popular video site that contains educational videos from colleges and universities. You can search for videos by keyword or you can browse videos by educational institutions such as Harvard and Stanford or by subjects such as Law, Health & Medicine, or Business. The University of Houston YouTube site can be accessed here.
