Presented by The New Jersey Law Librarians’ Association:

How to Find the Law:  Introduction to Basic Legal Reference

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 repeating the very successful workshops held last year at the Morris County Library, and the year before at the Mt. Laurel Library.


Join us for this all day program.  Lunch will be provided.

10:00 AM—4:00 PM (9:30 coffee & registration)

This workshop is being presented free of charge, but you must register.

Deadline for Registration:  Tuesday, October 9, 2012
