Have you ever wanted to search through the thousands of great articles that your professors (and their predecessors) have written while working at UW Law? How about locating great articles from the archives of the Wisconsin Law Review, International Law Journal, or the Journal of Law, Gender and Society...or even the Environmental Law Journal that was published in the 1990s? Now you can!
The Law Library is proud to announce the launch of the UW Law School Digital Repository. In the repository, users can quickly find and download thousands of journal articles, and other faculty and student publications for free, from anywhere in the world. The Repository is also home to the Bhopal Collection, a collection of secondary sources and primary materials relating to the Bhopal disaster in India in the early 1980s and the resulting legal aftermath, as collected and organized by Professor Marc Galanter. The Law Library is happy to provide a safe and permanent location for these materials, where researchers and students can easily find materials to help them as they create their own scholarly legacy.
The repository may be launched, but that does not mean we are finished! The repository will continue to grow to feature more special collections (such as the Wisconsin Briefs and Hurst Collections, which will be migrated to their new home), photos, videos, archival material and oral histories (such as this wonderful eight hour oral history with professor Herman Goldstein, UW Law Emeritus Professor and winner of the prestigious Stockholm Prize in Criminology)
We are excited to launch the repository, but are even more excited to get your feedback. If you have any questions, find any problems, or have trouble using the repository, please do let us know. You can contact me directly at Kris.Turner@wisc.edu, and we will work on answering your question about the repository. ASAP. Happy searching!
