New Electronic Resource Under Review
UNT Libraries is currently running a trial evaluation of an electronic legal resource: Ravel.
Ravel indexes case law at the local, state and federal levels and is key word searchable. One of its noteworthy features is an interactive visual map of your results that shows you how pertinent cases relate to one another in the legal landscape. Another feature is page-by-page analysis of each case to identify significant passages and to guide you to related on-point authority, allowing you to quickly and easily understand how analysis of a legal issue has evolved with precedent.
Login at https://www.ravellaw.com/ with the following credentials:
The trial will last until October 31 and includes full access to Ravel’s visualization and analytics platform that identifies, contextualizes, and interprets U.S. case law.
Feedback regarding user experiences with the resource is welcome: email Erin Miller to provide your comments and critique.Monday, October 13, 2014 (All day) to Friday, October 31, 2014 (All day)

Fem Flicks Film Series: After Tiller
Since the assassination of Dr. George Tiller in Kansas in May 2009, there are only four American doctors left who openly provide third-trimester abortions. AFTER TILLER paints a complex, compassionate portrait of these physicians who have become the new number-one targets of the anti-abortion movement. The film weaves together revealing, in-depth interviews with the doctors from their lives and inside their clinics, where they counsel and care for their anxious, vulnerable patients at an important crossroads in their lives. By sharing the stories of several of these patients, AFTER TILLER illuminates the experiences of women who seek late abortions and the reasons why they do so. (88min)
The Fem Flicks Film Series begins its seventh season this year. The Fall 2014 series includes three outstanding films that explore gender and the complex issues women face worldwide. Fem Flicks is a joint effort of the UNT Women's & Gender Studies, the UNT Multicultural Center and the UNT Media Library. Each screening is followed by a guest lecturer.Wednesday, October 29, 2014 - 4:00pm
The Factory Kick Off
To support new and innovative ways of learning and creating, the UNT Libraries are opening a new maker space in Willis Library on the first floor called The Factory. This new space will be available for students, faculty and staff of the UNT community to get access to equipment and software that promotes creativity.
The space will provide 3D printing and scanning, large format printing, standard printing, and prototyping electronics for checkout. We plan to add workshops and other events as we organize our current offerings and expand.
To show the community what we have available for use, we are hosting a kick off event in Willis Library, The Forum (room 140) on Monday, October 27 from 2:00 p.m. - 5:00 p.m. Anyone is welcome to attend to see what is available, ask questions, and provide feedback on how we can make this program a success for students and a resource for faculty. We are looking forward to seeing you and hearing your thoughts on our initial setup as well as what students and faculty would like to see added in the future!
