Please be courteous and respect your fellow students by keeping your voices down and your study areas clean. Food should remain outside the library. If you must bring a cell phone, please turn it off or set the ringer to vibrate, and remember to take the phone outside the library before you start your conversation. Drinks may be brought into the library, provided that you dispose of the container in the appropriate recycling bin when you are finished. No food or drinks of any kind are allowed in the computer labs. You can find more library policies online: http://library.kentlaw.edu/services/students.htm

Featured Resource: U. S. Supreme Court Records and Briefs

U. S. Supreme Court Records and Briefs is a comprehensive digital full-text collection of case documents filed with the Court from 1832-1978. The database contains official court filings related to over 150,000 cases, including those that were denied cert. Some cases consist of a few documents, while others may include dozens of documents. Documents for each case include all available applications, briefs, docket sheets, jurisdictional statements, memoranda, motions, petitions, statements, supplements, transcripts, and visual aids. This collection does not include the Courtís rulings, opinions or decisions.

Like the "Making of Modern Law" database (which we also purchased from Gale), this collection is fully searchable. Results are displayed as images of the original documents. You can view, download or print up to 50 pages at a time in PDF format.

Over the next year, a million more scanned images will be added to the database including full color maps and other scarce case documents.
