Thomson Reuters ProView Treatises Now Available

The entire Duke community now has access to more than 250 law treatises through the Thomson Reuters ProView platform. Titles from publisher Thomson Reuters Westlaw are visible to the University community and visitors when working on-campus within the University IP range; this link is accessible via Legal Databases & Links or the campus Law Databases page. (Off-campus access to ProView is available to current members of the Duke Law community via a current Westlaw login at the link above, or by clicking "Practice Ready" on the Westlaw Law School home page.)

The 255 available titles can be searched or sorted by title, author, jurisdiction, or subject; library staff are currently working to add individual links to the online catalog and Law Library research guides. Most titles focus on aspects of state or federal law in the United States, although selected titles relate to international law practice (such as International Capital Markets and Securities Practice) or domestic law of other countries (such as The French Commercial Code in English). 15 titles relate to the law of North Carolina, including nearly a dozen from the North Carolina Practice Series, such as Shuford North Carolina Civil Practice and Procedure. While many of these titles are also available to the University community in print in the Goodson Law Library, and online to Law School users within Thomson Reuters Westlaw, ProView allows campus users the convenience of online reading and searching while working within the campus IP range.

The campus ProView subscription allows for e-book viewing, searching, and printing of insubstantial amounts to PDF. (Law School users may log in with their Westlaw account to use additional annotation and highlighting features.) For help with accessing or using Thomson Reuters ProView, or for more information about books or e-books on legal topics, be sure to Ask a Librarian.
