Keywords – September 9, 2021

KEYWORDS: Law Library Weekly Newsletter

And we’re back with another Keywords, the only weekly law library newsletter with the legal research tips to help you impress your professors enough for them to say, “That brilliant student definitely understood the assignment.”

Even though we are back in person filling the seats of the Reading Room with our masked faces and closed beverage containers, it would behoove us to provide you with a quick rundown of your online legal research and study options. So, read on for a quick rundown of your online legal research and study options. 

A Source of Resources

Have you heard rumors of the existence of law librarian-curated research guides that cover a wide range of topics from corporate and securities law to resources for supporting protestors? Well, to quote Lizzo, “All the rumors are true.” Check out our Law LibGuides for links to topic-specific resources, primary sources, agency materials, and other items to help you on your research journey.

Ask Us Your Questions

We’ll tell you no lies – we’re research librarians. While you can find us at the Reading Room reference desk Mondays to Thursdays from 3 to 5pm, legal research questions are like time: they wait for no one. Or research librarians. Thankfully, you can email us at whenever your burning research questions arise. Just please allow 24 hours for a reply. We may be research librarians, but we’re still human. 

It’s Never Too Early

…to start dreading thinking about the best ways to prepare for those pesky exam-ercises that test your burgeoning legal knowledge and comprehension. However, it is too early to start freaking out.  Take a breath and just spend a few minutes every now and then to briefly examine our online study guides for legal lessons, practice tests, and helpful outlines.



We will be back next week with a new edition of Keywords. In the meantime, continue to wear your mask, study hardy, and send us your general library questions at
