Get REAL!: Finding Updates (Citators)

It's our season finale: the last of this semester's "Get REAL!" (Research and Electronic-Assisted Learning) tutorials. This week, we'll learn how to make sure the research you did some time ago -- be it days, weeks, or even years -- is still valid. Join Nick at the Reference Desk on Wednesday, November 16, at 1:30 pm for a short presentation on using citators and finding updates through other means.

If you missed any of our tutorials this semester, we'll be running them again next semester.

Get REAL!: Finding Law Review Articles

One of the hidden treasures of legal research is a law review article -- usually written by a brilliant professor who had time to do all the research you don't currently have the time to do! How can you find one of these great time-saving articles? Stop by the Reference Desk on Wednesday, November 9, at 1:30 pm, and Nick will tell you the many ways to start your treasure hunt. We'll cover both print-based and electronic-based searching. The class only runs about 15 minutes, so don't be late!
