The Jameson Law Library provides a variety of specialized services designed to assist faculty with their scholarship and teaching. This page details the highlights of our faculty services program. Please contact us if there is any additional service we can provide.
Research is what we do best! We can assist with small research projects or work with you or your research assistant to plan larger projects and find sources. For research assistance, contact Phil Cousineau at firstname.lastname@example.org or (406) 243-6808.
The Scholarly Forum is administered by Phil Cousineau. To facilitate adding your scholarship the the Scholarly Forum, please retain the following:
- A clean PDF of your published work (not a copy from Hein Online).
- A copy of your author agreement in which you retain the right to post your published work in electronic databases such as the Scholarly Forum. An example author agreement can be found here.
- A citation to your published work.

The library subscribes the West Study Aids for all students. Students and faculty are able to access hornbooks, nutshells, question-and-answer guides, Gilbert's summaries, "law stories" series and more. The subscription allows free, full access to over 400 titles in electronic book format. Students can access the books from any computer using their Westlaw passwords and highlight and take notes in the books.
To see a list of titles available for your class, http://lawschool.westlaw.com and click on the Study Aids Subscription link. If you have not used the Study Aids Subscription before or have not updated your password, you will be prompted to create a West Academic Account. After that you will be able to login to the Study Aids Subscription using your Westlaw password.
The library also purchases many of the West titles as well as several other study guide series in print including:
- Glannon Guides (Wolters Kluwer)
- Essentials (Wolters Kluwer)
- Examples & Explanations (Wolters Kluwer)
- Mastering (Carolina Academic Press)
- Understanding (LexisNexis)
- Questions & Answers (LexisNexis)
The library purchases print, electronic and audio-visual materials in accordance with our Collection Development Policy (currently under revision). If you would like to make a purchasing recommendation, contact Phil at email@example.com or (406) 243-5847.
Materials purchased by the library become part of the library collection but the law school maintains a fund to purchase personal materials for faculty. Contact Hannah Singleton to order personal copies at firstname.lastname@example.org or (406) 243-2694.
The library is part of a consortium made up of all the academic libraries in Montana. The libraries in the consortium share a catalog and there is a feature in the catalog you can use to request that books from any of the consortium libraries be sent out the law library. For assistance with this feature, see any librarian.
The library is part of an interlibrary loan network that allows us to borrow books from other libraries on a short-term basis. This is a good option for material you are interested in that falls outside the scope of our collection, especially non-law sources. If you would like to request an interlibrary loan, contact Diane Yancy at email@example.com or (406) 243-4847.
