Log In to LLMC Digital - Carol Hassler
For the first time, you can now log in to LLMC Digital from outside the library with a Wisconsin State Law Library card. LLMC Digital is a searchable archive of historical primary legal sources for Wisconsin, the United States, and other jurisdictions. The Wisconsin State Law Library has been an LLMC preservation partner for years, and access to their searchable database has been available to library visitors since 2003.
LLMC Digital collections include historical Wisconsin reports, session laws and statutes, and Wisconsin Attorney General Opinions. Researchers can access a number of sources from other jurisdictions, including Federal law and Native American laws, legislation, and treaties. Secondary sources, such as Federal government periodicals and a large number of treatises are also searchable.
Once you have logged in with your library card, use the links to the right of the page to search or browse the collections. Similar to our own library catalog, you can search the catalog for a title, an author, or a subject to locate a particular title in LLMC Digital.
Selecting “Search Collections” will allow you to do a broad keyword search of LLMC Digital’s catalog. If you have a citation - for example, to a Wisconsin Session Law - you can also enter it on this search screen.
Once in the document, you can print or download pages. Researchers can also run keyword searches within the volume. Watch the tutorial on their website for an overview of basic search features and strategies.
LLMC Digital is a great source for access to historical laws and documents, and a valuable tool for legal history researchers. While there is overlap between LLMC Digital and HeinOnline, LLMC Digital is not subject to the same licensing restrictions. If you can not access HeinOnline with your library card, you will be able to use LLMC Digital to meet your Wisconsin historical law research needs.

Tech Tip - Heidi Yelk
Tracking Apps for Attorneys
September is Library Card Sign-up Month and it might be said that library cards are the original “membership rewards card.” You probably had a library card long before you had a Blockbuster Video card or Sam’s Club card or a Fresh Perks card. And now, you’re probably thinking about all those pesky cards in your wallet. This month’s tech tip suggests a way to rid yourself of carrying those cards without losing all the benefits.
Loyalty card apps for smart phones store barcodes so you don’t have carry all those cards. Even your library card barcode can be stored so you only have to remember your phone next time you check out books from the library.
Popular apps include CardStar, Key Ring, and Stocard for Android and iOS.
