Digital Library

The library currently includes most of the substantive papers produced at IEL conferences from January 1, 2009, through early 2015, as well as newsletters and non-conference articles. This service is available free of charge to all IEL members, as well as all employees of IEL Sustaining and Supporting Members. If you are not an IEL member (or an employee of one of IEL’s Sustaining or Supporting Members), but would like access to the digital library, we offer a year-long subscription to the library for $100. Clicking the link below will take you to a library of papers, where you can search either by the category headings at the top of the page, or by keyword in the search box. Papers may be useful for self-study CLE purposes, but do not qualify as participatory CLE.
