The importance of text'books and pe-
riodials in legal research and the fact that
nearly every Washington case, sooner or
later, is cited in them, has prompted the
state law library staff to produce a citator
showing where this state's cases are so
This service is now installed in the Uni-
versity and state law libraries and can be
supplied to the other larger law libraries.
There are in excess of 25,000 3.'2x 5

In the evolution of legal research text
books and periodicals are used more and
more. Thousands of court opinions are
added each year to the many thousands
already extant. For the researcher to labor
through and' analyze this maze of court de-
cisions is often baffling, confusing and time
consuming. But the text book writer,
usually a specialist on the subject he writes
about, not only covers his subject thorough-
ly, distinguishing the various situations and
phases and giving the history and develop-
ment of the law, but he cites and often com-
pares, analyzes and evaluates the court de-
cisions. Unlike yesteryear, most of these
texts are kept current by periodic supple-
Legal periodicals are the most versatile
of all legal material. They constitute a
forum for the most critical analysis of
varied legal topics and court decisions and
they are particularly outstanding in their
treatment of new legal developments. They
are therefore a great aid in legal research.
While it would seem that to quiikly find
where a Washington case is considered in
text books and legal periodicals should prove
helpful, the value of this facility must be
determined by how much it is used. It could
be said to resemble Shepard's Washington
Citator in that there must be a Washington
case to start with, although its ultimate goal
is a more comprehensive treatment of the
principles of law involved and the citation
and consideration of other cases.
'The work of keeping up this service will
be done jointly by the University and the
state law libraries. The larger county law
libraries desiring to install this facility
should' make request to the state law library
at Olympia and agree to pay transportation
