About this page

This page provides tips for choosing the best resources for your legal issues research.

 

Resources for Your Legal Studies

Deciding What You Need

1. Does your assignment require books?  Journal articles? Web sites? 

  • If your syllabus asks you for journal articles, click on the Articles tab, and learn about ProQuest.
  • If your syllabus  asks for books, click on the Books tab, and learn how to find books in the RTC Library Catalog. Also ask at the Circulation desk, as some of our legal resources aren't in the catalog.
  • If your syllabus  asks for web resources, click on Web Sites. These pages list recommended web sites on many legal topics.  

2. If no formats are specified, think about the age of the material you need.

  • If you are researching something that is a established fact, try books (found in the RTC Catalog) or encyclopedias (found in the RTC Catalog, in Gale Encyclopedias or Credo Reference (found on the RTC Library Database page). Examples of established facts include "text of the 1966 Miranda decision" or "forms for Washington businesses."
  • If you are reseaching something new, try journal and newspaper articles (found in ProQuest.)
