In the coming weeks I will be organising legal research workshops in the library- details will appear on this blog, so please keep reading. In the meantime, here are some hints for how to find out more about doing legal research:
1 I-guides. Take a look at the i-guides on the My Library page of ELITE. They are short animations showing you how to get the best out of your legal research. They have received some very good reviews, so they might be just what you’re looking for!
2 The Research guide. This College-produced book tells you all about research strategies, and has a section on EVERY resource, printed and electronic, that you’re ever likely to use. If you haven’t yet received your free copy, please pick one up from the library counter. It’s also available online on the My Library page of ELITE.
If you’ve tried both these aids and still have questions: please ask the Information Officer! I am in on Monday and Thursday next week (week commencing 5th October) and I am always happy to answer any of your questions- please do ask. Next week, on the days when I’m not around, there’ll be a qualified College of Law librarian at the desk, who will also help.
Good luck with your research!
