Legal research requires the use of resources different than those usually found in a public library collection. Come learn about the resources patrons use in a law library setting to conduct legal research. Discover the differences between cases, statutes, and rules and regulations. Learn about where and how all of these materials and documents are found. Uncover the depth and breadth of a great treatise collection, and the importance of secondary sources. Combine this knowledge with the significance and treasures found in the stacks of a legislative/reference library and a law school library. Welcome aboard the legal reference express!
