Brush up on your legal reference skills to help your patrons find the legal information they need! A panel of law librarians will lead you through the maze of law research with this “by librarians, for librarians” workshop. If you never studied legal reference in library school, would like a refresher, or simply want to respond more effectively to your patrons’ questions, this workshop is for you!
You will learn to identify and apply resources in these areas:
· Basic legal materials
· State and federal case law
· State and federal legislation
· State and federal administrative law
· Internet resources
Bring along sample legal research queries and we’ll help you formulate successful search strategies!
Many thanks to the NJ Law Librarians Association for the fifth year that they are presenting this annual and very successful workshop. We rotate the locations throughout the state and this year we return north to the Morris County Library.
