Bluebook Videos by Elon School of Law Library

Today, I added a new link to the "Links of Interest" section of this site: Bluebook Videos created at Elon University School of Law Library. These videos are based on the 19th edition of the Bluebook.

I first learned of these videos this May at the North Carolina-South Carolina Legal Research & Writing Colloquium. I attended a session called Citations in a Flash presented by Kathleen McLeod and Patricia Perkins. They also mentioned that Rick Palmer, Academic Technology Consultant, Teaching and Learning Technologies at Elon played an important role in the development of this project. I thought that the video that we saw did a great job of parsing out the methodology behind the rules of the Bluebook. I think these videos will be great for students that are visual learners and I was happy to learn that more videos are available for us to share with our students.
