Volume 21, Issue 4 of MALL Markings
, the publication of the Mid-America Association of Law Libraries
, has been released. Two especially interesting articles in this issue come from the Creighton University Law Library. The first discusses creative ways to recycle obsolete, hardcover volumes. Two suggestions were donating volumes to high schools for use in art projects, and giving them away for targeting practice. Apparently hardcover law books hold up well to shotgun rounds.
The second article describes Creighton's project
to digitize briefs filed in the Nebraska's Supreme Court and Court of Appeals. The article walks through workflow library staffs follows to scan the briefs and load the files into the school's institutional repository.
