"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.

N.B: Make a note to visit "Nota Bene" regularly.

Law Librarians in Lawrence

The coming week, the Mid-America Association of Law Libraries (MAALL) and the Southwestern Association of Law Libraries (SWALL) will be having a joint meeting in Lawrence, KS. Several staff members of the O'Quinn Law Library will be attending this event and/or helped put it together:

• Mon Yin Lung, our Associate Director, is also the current President of SWALL and, as such, co-chaired the Programs Committee.
• Chris Dykes, one of our Reference/Research Librarians, was a co-coordinator for a two-part program entitled Navigating your Way through Legislative Research-A Six State Survey.
• Emily Lawson, another of our Reference/Research Librarians, also served on the Programs Committee and will also be participating as a moderator and speaker in the two-part, six-state-survey program she co-coordinated with Chris.

Finally, I will be presenting my program, The Bluebook, 19th ed.: Changes Every Legal Researcher Should Know, during which I will be discussing what I believe are the most important or significant changes made to The Bluebook during the change from the 18th to the 19th edition. For those who will be attending and would like to get a headstart on it, or for those who can't attend but would like to know what changes were made (or are just masochistic), here is a list I made of all the changes I could find (not counting the Bluepages, Tables, or Index).

Hope to see you there!
