The Virtual Law Bookshelf


Shelfari! is a great place to showcase your reading endeavors and reviews on a virtual bookshelf, and also to discover new and relevant books recommended by others. Click on the play button on the left (on the Voki) to hear what Walter has to say about Shelfari!

For Professors: It’s a great way to let students and/or other professors know what books you are reading, what books you have already read, and what books you want to read. I used the virtual bookshelf in my own class to show students what educational technology books I recommended (in addition to the course text), and to pique their interest in book options that would be beneficial to their learning experience.

For Students: Share helpful law resources with your peers and see what important books your professors or law librarians are reading!
