Services for Law Journal Members: Tech Check Preview

The Tech Check Preview (TCP) service streamlines the cite-checking process by identifying those items that may be difficult to lawref@bu.eduand CC sweig@bu.edu. A reference librarian will contact the journal to acknowledge receipt.

Please submit articles, with an electronic table containing footnotes and citations, at least 3 weeks before the article will be assigned to journal members, to lawref@bu.edu and CC dbachman@bu.edu.

In a TCP report, the librarian can: identify BU library resources for some publications, suggest online alternatives to print resources, identify sources that have to be gathered by interlibrary loan (ILL) or that may be difficult to obtain without the author's help. The librarian will then submit the ILL requests to the ILL department.

Books/Articles ILL Check

Please submit articles, with an electronic table containing footnotes and citations, at least 1 week before the article will be assigned to journal members.

The librarian will identify books and non-law journal articles that need to be obtained through ILL. ILL requests will be directly forwarded to the Circulation department. The journal's designated ILL person will be notified when requested materials are available. If you would prefer another journal member be designated on the ILL requests, please specify when requesting the ILL check.
