hocUnless you’ve been living under a pop culture rock (which in law school is highly likely) you know the third installment of the popular Netflix series House of Cards was released today. If you find yourself without a Netflix account but are still curious as to what the fuss is all about the we’ve got the two previous seasons available for checkout via our Popular DVD collection.

Along with House of Cards the collection focuses on feature films and television series, with an emphasis on law, lawyers, public policy, and government.  We also try to keep current award-winning movies and television series available.  Cornell faculty, staff, and students may check out DVDs; the loan period is seven days.

From this guide you can see our current titles and link to the catalog record to see if the DVD is available or checked out.  You can also browse the collection in person in the study area directly outside the Law Library’s Reading Room.

Do you have a suggestion for the collection? Contact Nina Scholtz, Digital Resources Librarian.

Every month the Cornell Law Library adds new titles to its collection. The most recent additions for February 2015 are posted, here. A few highlights from this month’s additions are featured below.

Foundational Texts In Modern Criminal Law – Edited by Dirk M. Dubber


Perspectives On Patentable Subject Matter –Edited By Michael B. Abramowicz, James E. Daily, and Scott Kieff

We’ve constructed a visual timeline of the Law Library’s history to coincide with Cornell’s 150th anniversary.

The interactive timeline is a feature of our brand new website and marks important events in the Library’s history from the Law School’s opening in 1887 through present day.


We’re pleased to announce that we’re implementing the innovative new LexisNexis Digital Library (http://cornell.law.overdrive.com), which offers some of our more frequently used treatises and practice guides in eBook format.

Law slexisgraphicstudents, faculty and staff can check out and return titles via the Digital Library website on your work or home computer (PC or Mac) or using your mobile device. Once an eBook is checked out, internet access is not required to read the eBook, only to access embedded links. You may use the Overdrive Read function to download eBooks directly into your web browser, or you may download titles to your preferred eReader software or device. All the titles available in the Digital Library will also remain available at the Law Library in print.

To sign into the Digital Library, enter your NetID and password. For more information on using the Digital Library, please see the attached information sheet, see our website, or contact Nina Scholtz, Digital Resources Librarian.
