Current Index to Legal Periodicals (CILP)

CILP is a current awareness tool prepared by the law librarians and staff of the Marian Gould Gallagher Law Library of the University of Washington School of Law. CILP indexes over 500 legal publications, which are organized within 100 relevant subject headings. A complete table of contents is provided for all journals that are indexed, and citations are in Bluebook form.

The Library has purchased the SmartCILP service for the Law School Faculty. SmartCILP is "A personalized periodical awareness tool for legal researchers." SmartCILP is a fee-based service that provides automated personalized e-mail delivery of CILP. Electronic subscribers continue to get the full text of CILP each week. After setting up a SmartCILP profile, subscribers receive an additional e-mail message each week that focuses only on the subject headings and journals they selected. This e-mail message is clearly marked as "SmartCILP" to allow easy identification and review of results. SmartCILP profiles can be changed each week, allowing subscribers to tailor the delivery of CILP to their changing research needs.
