Jocelyn Stilwell-Tong, Research & Training Librarian at Paul Hastings LLP is my hero! Jocelyn compiled and forwarded a list of resources explaining how to run an annual meeting for shareholders. Jocelyn’s list now comprises the “Annual Meetings” section of the Shareholders entry. Jocelyn — if you keep this up, you’re going to put me out of a job. 🙂
The USPQ is now available only through Bloomberg Law and the Intellectual Property Law Resource Center on BNA.com. Thanks to Lucy Curci-Gonzalez, Director of Library Services at Kenyon & Kenyon LLP, for letting me know the USPQ is no longer available on Lexis or Westaw.
Trevor Rosen, DC librarians for Kilpatrick, Townsend & Stockton LLP, has been working as an editor for Zimmerman’s Research Guide since the New Year. Trevor first updated all the Dialog reference to reflect the new ProQuest Dialog, and he is now working his way through the annual link check. I send a big Thank You to Trevor for all his hard work.
I would like to thank …
- Katherine Lowry, Reference Librarian at Cleary Gottlieb Steen & Hamilton LLP, for letting me know about the broken link to Lauren Schroeder’s Researching Oil & Gas Law: A Legal Research Guide in the Energy entry;
- Ramon Barajas, Jr., Research Librarian at Munger, Tolles & Olson LLP, for letting me know about the new freestanding website for the Almanac in the Federal Judiciary in the Judges entry; and
- Rachel Gordon, Access Services Librarian at the Furman Smith Law Library at Mercer University School of Law, for suggesting I add the Lexis ORDERS as a source for updating Federal Court rules.
You have all helped make the Guide better for everyone!

Couldn’t sleep, so I added links to Canadian and EU food recall announcements to the Food entry.
