U of I College of Law Launches Digital Research Repository

January 31, 2019

MOSCOW, Idaho — Jan. 31, 2019 — The University of Idaho College of Law Library has launched a research and records repository that serves as the only online source for Idaho Supreme Court records and briefs as well as other legal documents.

The free repository, Digital Commons @ UIdaho Law , offers access to court documents and law research previously available only in print. The database also brings together all of the U of I College of Law’s research, including Idaho Law Review articles and law faculty research, into one location.

“These resources are invaluable to law students and faculty, legal scholars, attorneys and members of the general public,” said Jerrold Long, dean of the U of I College of Law.

Three signature collections form the backbone of the repository: More than 10,000 Idaho Supreme Court and Idaho Court of Appeals records, briefs and transcripts; work authored and produced by faculty at the College of Law; and recent issues of the Idaho Law Review, a student-edited journal.

Anyone interested in learning more about Digital Commons may contact Anna Blaine, assistant professor and head of public services, at annablaine@uidaho.edu or visit the College of Law Library circulation desk in Moscow.
