“With access to LLMC Digital, Creighton University Law Library has been able to fill gaps in its historical materials that we would otherwise have to try and borrow from other libraries. By having the cataloging records in our ILS, we have given our patrons full access to a wealth of information that otherwise they would not discover.”
Heather Buckwalter - Serials/Acquisitions Librarian, Creighton University Law Library
