Free Oregon State Bar (OSB) Publications for Oregon Attorneys (and others)

OREGON ATTORNEYS: YOU HAVE FREE, EASY, and REMOTE ACCESS TO THIS PHENOMENAL COLLECTION OF OSB PUBLICATIONS!!!
IT’S CALLED OSB BARBOOKS.
REALLY, TRULY! IT’S FREE!  IT’S EASY!  ACCESS FROM HOME, FROM ROME, FROM THE CHICAGO DOME!
I apologize for the ONLINE SHOUTING, but I still (!) meet lawyers who do not know they have free and easy (and remote) access to these Oregon State Bar online publications.  (BARBOOKS!) (The bar did a massive blitz of publicity about this for months, including email, print, training, etc. so I’m not sure exactly WHY there are perfectly good attorneys who don’t know about this excellent research tool.)
This is a phenomenal database (BarBooks!) with dozens of practice materials and monographs – and it’s easy to use.
Many Oregon county law libraries subscribe to the BARBOOKS database and make it available on their public computers (though many of our lawyer and non-lawyer patrons still prefer to start with the print version).
