New Empirical Legal Studies Database

Law Librarian Blog has the rundown of the new Empirical Legal Studies Bibliography from UCLA and Cornell Law Schools:
Not officially launched, but now live is the fabulous Empirical Legal Studies Bibliography. A joint product of UCLA and Cornell law schools (with much of the indexing and literature review to create the database done by librarians at those two schools, namely Matt Morrison, Jill Fukunaga, and June Kim), users can search for ELS articles by author, title, subject, or year. For those of us who have grappled with requests for ELS articles in a particular subject, we know how difficult these projects can be. This new product is much needed and provides an important service in this expanding area of legal scholarship.
