Duke’s Dick Danner was interviewed by his school’s news service. The resulting article, “Legal scholarship: To print or not to print?,” from Duke Law News & Events, discusses the Durham Statement on Open Access to Legal Scholarship
Dick mentions symposium issues. Here at Stanford we’ve been separately cataloging and binding law review symposium issues for years. This adds a new tool for access to law review content (via the OPAC), and it also enables patrons to find the issues while browsing the stacks (yes, some patrons still do this — to their great benefit). Our interlibrary loan person tells me that we have received a number of requests for these “monographs,” with the requestor sometimes noting “only you appear to have this item” (which makes us chuckle, but we’re very happy to spread the word about this very useful material).
Here is a sample record:
