Boost Your Legal Research Efficiency: Exploring the New & Valuable Features of IFLP
Join us for a webinar on Index to Foreign Legal Periodicals (IFLP), hosted in HeinOnline, and learn about AALL's premier product firsthand from the editorial staff of IFLP. In addition to the existing features, this webinar will introduce a brand new feature called IFLP Alerts, which allows users to create customized email alerts pertaining to indexed content of interest (Topics, Regions, Country Subjects, Journals, and Languages).
In today's world, with the internet providing us with easy access to information, it's not always easy to find reliable and relevant information for our research. That's where IFLP comes in - a valuable tool for quickly retrieving the resources you need. The index provides results that match your keyword search in the title, abstract, or author, ensuring that you find articles relevant to your research, rather than articles that merely mention your search term one or two times. With fewer yet higher quality results yielded from an index, you can spend less time searching, and more time learning.
IFLP is a must-have resource for law and academic librarians, law firms, corporations, and more. It offers fully-searchable indexing from 1985 forward, a multilingual index with 26 languages covered, and full-text linking to more than 80,000 articles and book reviews. You also get access to the digitized version of the entire print Index dating back to 1960, ISSN and ISBN linking to your local library catalog or WorldCat, and OpenURL linking to resources at your library.
In this webinar, you will get an in-depth understanding of the product, its features, and how it can help you in your research. You will also get an opportunity to ask questions and interact with the editorial staff of IFLP. Don't miss out on this opportunity to learn more about this valuable resource.
