New Law Journal Press (LJP) Platform

  •  

The next time you read an online book using Law Journal Press* (LJP), you may notice that the database has recently updated its platform. LJP has a refreshing new user interface, and its functions are more intuitive to use.

When accessing LJP from the Jenkins website, the database will automatically open toMy Bookshelf, which displays the titles within Jenkins’ LJP subscription (whereas clicking “Browse All Titles” will include books that are not within our plan). 

Browsing & Viewing Books

To browse the titles in “My Bookshelf” by Topic and/or State, select and apply one or more options from the respective drop down menus near the top of the screen. 

Selecting Criminal from the Topic drop down menu, for example, results in ten titles related to this topic, including titles such as RICO: Civil and Criminal Law and Strategy, White Collar Crime: Business and Regulatory Offenses, and Environmental Enforcement: Civil and Criminal. 

Topics such as Litigation, Intellectual Property, and Business Entities each have an ample selection of books, so there may be a few pages of results for such categories. The page navigation buttons are found near the bottom of the screen.

You can also change the way the list of titles appears on your screen using the various functions near the top right corner of the screen. You can sort the titles in various ways (alphabetically, featured, most popular, etc.) or adjust the number of titles that are shown on each page, for example.

Searching for Books

To search by title, author, or keyword, you can use the main search bar at the top of the screen. However, after running your search, make sure to select “My Bookshelf” under the “Category” filter, and click “Apply Filter” to ensure you’re viewing books within Jenkins’ LJP subscription.

Stay tuned for a follow-up post on how to search and navigate within a particular LJP online book.
