  • Irwin Law is Changing

    by Lesley Dobin | Jun 06, 2017

    Who is affected?

    Users who read, annotate and bookmark Irwin Law titles through the Reading Room.

    What is changing?

    • Irwin Law has moved to a new platform called DesLibris.  Irwin Law titles on the old platform, ebrary, will only be available to access until Friday June 30th.
    • Annotations and bookmarks will not move to the new platform.

    Can I still bookmark and read titles at home?

    Once you create an account on DesLibris you will be able to add annotations and commentary to titles saved on your personal bookshelf, full-text online reading, while also performing limited printing.

    Try DesLibris when you next visit the Lawyers' Reading Room and let us know if you have any questions.
