About Us

Welcome to the William J. Jameson Law Library Blog

Thanks for visiting!

Who are we?  We are the staff of the Law Library for The University of Montana School Missoula-campusof Law in Missoula, Montana.  Our mission is to support excellence in legal research, teaching, scholarship, and practice in Montana — for our faculty and students, the university community, the practicing bar, and the people of Montana.

What’s in our blog?  You can expect entries on legal research how-to and tips, legal resources to aid your research, reviews of law-related books and movies, law library announcements and happenings, and legal trivia and interesting factoids discovered as we conduct research — we do find the most interesting things as we do our jobs!  You can also expect posts on law-related tech products, information, and tips, as well as thoughtful reflections on law libraries and the law.  Look for our bi-monthly updates of new books by topical area, which is listed under the New Books tab.  Links to other blogs and websites we think will be helpful to you are listed on the right column.

How often do we post?  We post weekly, generally on Fridays.  Postings, however, may vary on holidays and during semester breaks.

Who took those photos on our header?  Ed Wrzesien, who works in the Law School IT department, has graciously allowed us to use some of the amazing photos he’s taken across the great state of Montana.  You can see more of his work on Flickr
