"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.

The Social Science Research Network (SSRN) has a free app (available for the iPod Touch, iPhone, and iPad) that allows you to search by subject, author, abstract, or keyword for over 260,000 working documents from scholars in the social sciences (including legal scholars) and the humanities. SSRN allows scholars to be "published" by enabling them to post their articles while they await acceptance by a scholarly journal. SSRN also helps scholars avoid having their research preempted by enabling them to locate working articles that pertain to their research before publication in a print journal. While articles can only be posted on the desktop version, the app will allow the user to view and e-mail documents.
