Selected Session Cases available online

The Scottish Council of Law Reporting, publishers of the Session Cases, have made selected cases available for free from their website.

In their own words:

For some years the Scottish Council of Law Reporting has provided the law-teaching universities in Scotland with a CD-ROM containing cases selected from the Session Cases® archive to distribute as a learning aid to their students. Technologies change, and the Council is pleased to provide a database of Scottish cases selected from their archive as an open access resource.

The only problem I'm having is finding out a listing or index of what these selected cases are, but hey, for allowing even some access to an otherwise subscriber access only database, I'm not complaining!

I hate the Justis SC navigation almost as much as I hate LexisNexis's!

We have a sub to the Session Cases online at the moment anyway, but the navigation for them isn't so hot, and just listing that there's a case in a year doesn't really help.

If there was a master list of the case names, it would mean glancing at that to see if it was on there, instead of having to burrow into half a dozen click boxes (Justis > Cases > Scottish Cases > Session Cases > Select year > Show results) to confirm if the case you want is one of the "selected" ones or not.

Again, it *is* free, but it would be better if was also simpler to use! ;)

Library words

Putting words about libraries and books onto posters is very popular, so there's all sorts of options out there. These items are here because they have a quote or slogan about libraries or books printed on them. There's one quote in particular that seems to be a favourite of poster makers: see if you can spot which one it is.... Library bird (ok, it's a magnet, but hey...)

Mini Christmas gifts

Miniature things are one of my favourites, and miniature books are no exception. These tiny books are available either as volumes or sets of volumes on their own, or as parts of dolls house or in specialised miniature library settings. And some of the miniature libraries are just insanely good! I've not included here the many options of wearable miniature books - earrings, necklaces, bracelets, badges... A book with its own drawer for safekeeping Mini clay books Decorative mini books Ghosts in the library books Not exactly miniature, but very small "Little Leather Library" collection How about a Medieval illuminated book, in miniature? Or one with a secret compartment? There are even illustrated erotic mini books! You can theme by colour!
