on the Carolina Law Digital Repository:
The law library’s digital repository team is making great
progress in filling our digital home for scholarship with interesting content.
We have incorporated our William Aycock collection into the repository. We are
well on our way to making law journal articles from all five publications
housed at Carolina Law available as well. The entire run (through Volume 18) of
the North Carolina Banking Institute is already available, and Volumes 1 – 44
of the North Carolina Law Review are live as well. You can view both at http://scholarship.law.unc.edu/peer_review_list.html,
though we are not yet publicizing our repository overtly until this spring or
summer. Finally, plans are taking shape to make faculty scholarship available
in the repository. Aaron Kirschenfeld, Reference & Digital Initiatives
is coordinating this part of our project, and you will likely be hearing from
him in the next several months. You can also address any questions you may have
at this early stage to him. The other members of the repository team are
Assistant Director for Collections and Access Julie Kimbrough (the repository
project’s manager) and Stacey Rowland, Reference and Digital Communications
Librarian (the repository’s technical director).
LibRA: Reference Librarian Dave Hansen oversees the pool
of library research assistants who are available to do research projects for
faculty on an ad hoc basis (projects generally limited to those taking 20 hours or less of research time). Please contact him if you need assistance
with a research project (email@example.com).
Empirical Research Support: The library shares an
empirical research specialist with Duke’s Law Library who is available to
assist faculty with any research projects involving the use of data.
Guangya Liu (Ya) is usually on UNC campus in her office in the law library at
least one day a week. She can be contacted at her email: firstname.lastname@example.org.
Research Training for your Classes: Librarians are
always happy to prepare short presentations related to research in a
