At the end of class, I'll ask you to take this extremely brief survey to help me improve the library instruction sessions I do. The results are anonymous. Thanks!


I suggest beginning with an article rather than jumping directly into searching for cases because the context and explanation of a case will help you determine if the case is relevant for your paper, if it has any significance beyond itself, and if there's enough material to support a 10-15 page research paper.

Having said that, no matter where you choose to start, you will eventually search for both cases and articles.

Please feel free to email me with any questions or set up a one-on-one session through the library or Navigate. We can meet in person or by video.
