OneSearch Discovery System  

The Georgetown Law Library is pleased to introduce OneSearch. OneSearch is a tool for discovering articles, books, databases, and other resources from many different places. It uses a massive search index that dives deep into our catalog, subscription databases, and other Georgetown libraries. Access it with this link, or by clicking the OneSearch tab in the search box on the library website.  

OneSearch also has built-in tools to help navigate this vast array of resources. "Best bets" and database recommendations highlight popular resources. Facets let help refine searches. And OneSearch has numerous features to improve usability, such as auto-completion when entering search terms, spelling correction, and a responsive design for mobile device compatibility. 

Acquisition of Jeremy Bentham's States of the Mind with Respect to Delinquency

Special Collections has acquired a unique manuscript glimpse into the mental world of Jeremy Bentham, the founder of utilitarian political thought and Anglo-American codification efforts.  

When Bentham first proposed his universal legal code, which he termed the Pannomiom, his goal was a simplified legal code that could be readily understood by everyone without the need to consult a lawyer. Such simplification apparently eluded even Bentham's talents and the Pannomiom was never completed. All that remains are several thousand manuscript leaves outlining various subjects and chapters, most of which are held by University College London which is crowdsourcing transcriptions. Special Collections' Pannomial fragment was apparently a presentation copy given to an unknown person at the opening of UCL in 1836. It is an outline in Bentham's hand for "Ch. 7. States of the mind with respect to delinquency," and includes his thoughts on distinguishing intellectual faculty from volitional faculty for purposes of determining criminal liability.  

This intriguing document is available online through Digital Georgetown. For access to the actual document, please contact Erin Kidwell, Curator of Legal History Collections (202-662-9149) or Hannah Miller-Kim, Special Collections Librarian (202-661-6602); or email us at specl@law.georgetown.edu.

November Tech Recommendation

About a year and a half ago, I gave a faculty presentation on technology for scholarly organization which was highly focused on Zotero, a citation and resource manager. This tool helps to organize your research and automatically produce footnotes during the writing process. At that time, an additional resource was available, a variant of Zotero called MLZ (which stood for Multi-Lingual Zotero). MLZ aimed to fix some things that made Zotero imperfect for legal writing and citation. As noted in the name, MLZ also provided support for foreign language materials that was absent or lacking in Zotero.  

A massive rewrite of Zotero's code base meant MLZ had to undergo a similarly massive update. In the change, MLZ became Juris-M. Juris-M provides the same functionality as MLZ did and offers a better Bluebook style template than any of the ones offered in the official Zotero style database. 

If you would like to look at some brief tutorials on how to use Zotero and Juris-M, I have recently updated the library's Zotero tutorials (Basics/Getting Started, Organizing and Collaborating, Writing and Creating Citations, Advanced Zotero Tools). If you would like personal assistance in implementing or installing Zotero or Juris-M, please feel free to contact me: Jill Smith, jas515@law.georgetown.edu or 202-662-9165.
