Looseleaf services are defined in Black's Law Dictionary as “A type of lawbook having pages that are periodically replaced with updated pages, designed to cope with constant change and increasing bulk” (at 954, 7th ed. 1999). These sources provide timely updates to specific areas of law and often span jurisdictions.
Typically created in the form of ring or post binders, looseleafs can be taken apart to insert and/or remove pages. In general, there are two types of services:
Some services, however, combine versions of the two types to serve the user to better advantage.
If you are not sure if your area of research has a looseleaf service, check out Legal Looseleafs in Print (on Reserve KF 1 L42) to use this annual publication's subject index. Once you find a specific title, search the library catalog to see if the title is available here.
