Interlibrary Loan: Decision Reporters in Print

If the Law Library does not have the print decision reporter or looseleaf, nor provides electronic access to the print version of the decision reporter, then submit an ILLiad PDF Request form. These days, however, administrative decisions are published through a variety of more easily accessible online sources that are accepted by The Bluebook. Print reporters and looseleaf publications are no longer the only, nor necessarily the official, source for administrative decisions.
