"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.

United Nations News Reader

The United Nations recently launched a free app that allows you to access international news stories from the UN News Centre on your mobile device. Currently the app is available for iOS devices and can be downloaded through iTunes. You can browse the most recent UN news stories and view articles on particular subjects or from various regions of the world. The app also allows you to save your favorite articles as well as read the materials offline.

However, this is not the only app available from the UN. The organization has also created apps for the Charter of the United Nations and the Universal Declaration of Human Rights as well as others. For more information about these apps and more, see the UN Mobile Applications website.
