New Legal Research Publications

The following recently published titles provide valuable legal research materials. Each provides background information and further research sources on their subjects: American Indian law and on land grabbing. Published in the Law Library Journal, a publication of the American Association of Law Libraries (AALL).

Beth DiFelice, Indian Treaties: A Bibliography, 107 Law Libr. J. 241 (2015).
“This bibliography describes sources for research into treaties between the U.S. government and Indian tribes, focusing on primary sources. The sources are preceded by an overview of the treaty process and the termination of the government’s power to enter into treaties with Indian nations.”

Jootaek Lee, Contemporary Land Grabbing: Research Sources and Bibliography, 107 Law Libr. J. 259 (2015).
“This article investigates land grabbing and identifies the difficulties of research. Next, it delineates various mechanisms and international principles that can be useful in protecting those affected by contemporary land grabs. Finally, it selectively reviews current literature that provides useful starting points for contemporary land grabbing research.”

The Journal is available in the library (K 12 .A9364); on the website of AALL; and on HeinOnline, WestlawNext, and Lexis Advance.
