Research Guides Help Make Your Research Easy

Our Research Guides are a great place to start your research!

Here are five ways they can make your life easier now:

  • Research guides can help you locate authoritative secondary sources, like leading treatises on a topic. A good treatise can save you boat loads of research time.
  • Research guides point you to databases beyond your standard Lexis and Westlaw. If you stop your research with those two databases, you may miss something.
  • If you’re writing a seminar paper or journal note, you can use research guides to find current awareness sources like blogs and other websites. These can help you when choosing a topic to write about.
  • If you’re studying for exams, research guides let you know what study aids we have available for you in the library.
  • Research guides are free! And you can use them once you’re out in practice.

As always, you have your librarians available to help out too!easy
