SilverPlatter Adds More Titles

Article excerpt

SilverPlatter has added three new titles to its impressive line of CD-ROM titles.

The company is now offering the Index to Foreign Legal Periodicals (IFLP) database. Published by the University of California Press for the American Association of Law Libraries, IFLP is an index to articles and book reviews appearing in legal journals and related literature published worldwide. The database on SilverPlatter covers the eight annual cumulations issued from 1985-1992, plus the current quarterly issues.

IFLP provides access to a broad range of legal journals and essays across jurisdictions and language boundaries. Its scope is worldwide, encompassing all legal systems, all continents, and all languages. As such, it is an essential tool for academic and research professionals, as well as for government, corporate, and international practitioners.

IFLP indexes 430 legal periodicals, as well as selected articles and book reviews from legal essay collections and congressional reports related to public and private international law, and the law of all jurisdictions other than the U.S., U.K., Canada, and Australia.

IFLP contains more than 100,000 records and is updated on a quarterly basis. An annual single-user CD-ROM subscription is priced at $1,095. Network prices for two to eight simultaneous users are 50 percent higher.

These abstracts are unique in that they do not present raw numbers in tables and charts; rather they contain the data selected by writers and speakers to influence others-presented in statistically supported arguments in the writers' and speakers' own words. The statements always cite original sources so the user can refer to them for further information.
