Legal researchers should never allow a late semester time crunch lead to disordered research. Taking shortcuts in legal research can slow you down and add confusion, pressure, and tedium to the process. In addition, going without a plan can lead you to struggle through an enormous list of irrelevant results, misunderstand the law, or even select the wrong database altogether, missing important resources.
Meetings with the reference librarians at the Ross-Blakley Law Library are short, sweet, and efficient. We have the expertise to quickly identify the best legal research databases for your project and suggest research strategies that can help you craft quality writing projects, even in a time crunch at the end of the semester.
A few specific examples of what the reference librarians can help you with:
(1) showing you how to access and navigate the many available legal secondary sources so that you feel more confident in your search results
(3) providing tips and strategies for reducing the volume of irrelevant or unhelpful search results
