1 Tax Law Review, fall 2011

2 Finding Books Start with the JULIUS ONLINE CATALOG –Named after Julius Marke, library Director from 1945 to 1982; appointed by Arthur T. Vanderbilt. 3 call number systems @ NYUL: –LC: Most call numbers here begin with KF In LC classification: K = law; KF = U.S. law Some international materials begin JX or JZ –NYUL: our indigenous system; used for older materials Created by Julius Marke, ca 1950 Separate and distinct from LC; does not follow alphabetically after KF –SuDoc: for government documents Also shelved in specific places

3 NYU LLs 6 levels, in section; 22 JULIUS locations

4 Library home page:

5 Both Julius Online Catalog and Books, Journals & Databases go to JULIUS: Find Books & MoreJulius Online Catalog Books, Journals & Databases

6 Getting your book: The call # isnt enough: note the LOCATION, if STATUS says it is available NB: LOCATIONS are linked to the library maps

7 Furman Hall has historical tax materials, NYUL KR53 - NYUL KR58, e.g., early tax codes

8 On floors with multiple locations, the location you need will be in color. NYUL quarantine A-J call numbers are south of NYULs & north of the Ks; L-Zs are south of the KFs. We have very few non-K/KFs.

9 More on books: If we have what you need, but STATUS = unavailable, remember that books can be recalled –How can you tell if a faculty member has it? –Overdue books can also be recalled from students –Put a hold on a book at Circ Desk If not here, try BOBCAT, Bobst Librarys catalog. –Links are on the Julius home page –Register your ID there to check books out –NB: We do not order Bobsts books thru ILL, unless NOS Other NYU libraries –If registered at Bobst, New School checkout = OK –No check out at some NYU libraries w/Law School ID; use ILL.


11 If not here or at Bobst, and time is a consideration Columbia Law Library (Diamond) & Fordham Law Library at Lincoln Center: –Access via your NYU ID card, if you decide to go there –Reading & photocopying = ok; no checkout –NB: Columbias Butler Library, etc, will not honor your ID Other NYC law school libraries: green letter NYC non-law, non-NYPL libraries: METRO referral card –Request METRO cards and green letters at the Reference Desk NYPL: you must show valid ID for a library card No obligation to go anyplace but Bobst.

12 You need one book that we dont have, for any reason, that the library you want to visit shows as on the shelf. Be aware that a book might not be available, despite its catalog STATUS.

13 To check local availability:

14 Library Catalogs link has local law libraries & others

15 Find Journals & Articles

16 Find Journals & Articles: Journal Title Actual dates of inclusion may be more generous; check DB –Not all e-journals are in PDF, or even full text Abstract only for very recent articles = typical Search journal titles, not article titles –For chapters in books, use GOOGLE BOOKS, ADVANCED SEARCH What you are searching: –Paper & microforms, here –Electronic access, here + through Bobst Library. Search BobCat for paper holdings of older, multidisciplinary journals –Quicker, more targeted than a JULIUS title search But use JULIUS if you get no hits; mform might be an option Contents of some databases do not appear –Articles on WL do, articles on LN do not. –Check individual databases: e.g., Ingenta, WilsonWeb.

17 Legal & multidisciplinary indexes in Article Finders drop-down; access more materials than full-text databases.

32 General (ie, non-tax) Legislative History LexisNexis has Historical Indexes – Hearings 1789 through 1980 and CIS/Historical Index –Gives bibliographic info and the CIS m-form number ProQuest Congressional –Formerly LexisNexis Congressional Still on a LN server, & will be for several more years –Clearer dates of inclusion ProQuest Legislative Insight –Goes back only to 75 th Cong. (1937-1938), so far –But: Compiled legislative histories go back farther (1961- 62) than Congressional (1969-70) and will continue. Many documents on both Proquest dbs are pdf.

33 If not at NYU and not conveniently available locally, use ILLiad for ILL

34 Click First Time Users; use your NYU email address to set up your account.

35 ILL Specifics: Materials must be ordered in editors names, not TLRs Not instantaneous; can take 1-2 weeks Limitations on materials we can order: –No volumes from sets; non-circulating materials; rare books; Bobst books; microforms available here or at BL; some newspaper articles; no international ordering. You will be notified by email; pick up books at circulation within one week, or they are returned Keep only as long as cover strip says you can Renewals are only possible: –BEFORE the due date, & –IF the lending library will permit Return books to circulation desk on time, please. Caveat: We cannot order materials if your information is incorrect –You will get an email saying that your request failed. –Titles & publication information must be verified.

36 Verify titles via OCLCs Worldcat

37 None of our copies of this book can be checked out of the library. However, Bobsts copy can be checked out, and we would not honor an ILL request, unless that copy is NOS. Revesz, Richard Retaking Rationality

38 Request Item-LAW ONLY You can verify publication information, & make a perfect ILLIAD request (no mistakes, no cancelled requests), directly from the OCLC record: LAW ILL opens the ILLiad logon page; this information fills the form; add notes if necessary, & click Submit Request.

39 Click Libraries worldwide that own item; this is part of the list. Links typically go to the record you need in the holding libraries catalogs.

40 If only a few libraries own your book: Click on the catalog links and search them. Be sure that the book can be checked out of that library. –Books that cant, will not be lent, either. Hopefully, it will be owned by a local library that you can visit. If not, you may have to contact your author.

41 If you get no hits in OCLC: No library owns it –Too old? Possibly, but not likely. It is not yet published –Too new? May be forthcoming & temporarily unavailable. There is a mistake in your citation information –Possibly published out of the country under a different title? –Try keyword searching –Try the publishers web site, if you have that information If no luck, come to reference for assistance

42 Microforms If we own it in microform, we dont order it through ILL Check JULIUS to be sure your book or article isnt on a database in pdf, e.g., HeinOnline or Making of American Law

43 For ex.: New York Law Journal: Search in Journal Title –Many options for current issues: from 2000 Westlaw from 1989 Legaltrac from 2003 Proquest from 2005 But: a NYLJ case or article from the mid- 1980s or earlier can only be found on microform.
