with the Documents Librarian Selections are made with the advice of the Head of Reference Services and other subject specialists under the direction of the Law Library Director Each year a zero based review of selections is made and appropriate adds and drops are made Items can be added or dropped throughout the year new selections become effective in October of the calendar year in which they are added The zero based review includes reviewing the FDLP s List of Classes and the list of items selected by Pace Law Library The Suggested Core Collection for Law Libraries in the Legal Requirements Program Regulations of the Federal Depository Library Program is another important tool IV Collection Arrangement The government documents collection has been intensively cataloged and the paper depository collection is well integrated into the regular Law Library collection in LC call number order Although many government documents are published in electronic format now the print documents that we still receive through the FDLP are reviewed each month for relevance to the Law Library collection The small group of paper documents deemed not pertinent to our collection are shelved on the first floor of the Law Library arranged according to their Superintendent of Documents Classification SuDocs numbers during the time Pace Law Library is legally required to retain them We catalog most print documents and many electronic titles within our selection profile in order to give our patrons access to both tangible and online government resources As the U S Government Printing Office pursues a policy of distributing more and more publications exclusively online it assigns permanent URLs PURLs intended to keep the electronic publications accessible over time A primary goal of the depository library community is to ensure permanent public access to important government publications by notifying the Superintendent of Documents of broken links and by preserving electronic publications At Pace we make every effort to keep links to online government documents current in the library catalog and work with depository libraries nationwide on permanent preservation issues Until 1997 the depository microforms were not cataloged at Pace By 2003 however all depository microform serials and selected monographs were added to the Library catalog Cataloged depository microfiche retain their SuDocs classification numbers and can be cross referenced to Pace Law Library s Shelves database that lists all government documents selected by Pace by item number SuDocs number title date of receipt shipping list number and location

    the need to think like a lawyer Today Bollinger a partner in the litigation practice at Morgan Lewis says he thinks like both an engineer and a lawyer in his work handling patent and trademark cases The funny thing is he says thinking like a lawyer isn t much different than thinking like an engineer It s a way of thinking outside the box and creatively attacking an issue by using problem solving strategies Bollinger brings those strategies to bear as a trial attorney representing such clients as Merrill Lynch The Gillette Company Lehman Brothers MIT and Yale University He often draws on his chemical engineering background in cases representing clients in the fields of pharmaceuticals biotechnology polymer and organic chemistry I ve always been interested in science and biotechnology he says Bollinger worked full time while attending Pace Law School at night a schedule that left little free time but made for the forging of strong friendships Among Pace night students there was a lot of camaraderie he recalls We were all going through a kind of collective suffering holding down day jobs maintaining our relationships at home and going to law school We all knew we were in a competitive environment but it never translated into anything negative We were dependent on each other and we pulled together While grueling especially since his job working for the chemical engineering division of an oil company required travel Bollinger says many times his work family and student lives intersected I d been through several real estate deals I was involved in a patent lawsuit at work and those were things I d be studying in my law classes at night Even in my first year at Pace I was studying things that I could relate to what I was doing
