New tool for legal research
We’ve recently added a new database, Campus Research, to our collection. Published by Westlaw, Campus Research includes analytical sources - more than 700 law reviews and journals - and primary law sources – all federal and state cases including U.S. Supreme Court cases, state statutes and regulations, the Code of Federal Regulations, and the Federal Register.

Important features of Campus Research include:Research Trail displays a list of task you’ve completed, including citations to documents retrieved and resources used. This list can then be saved/emailed/printed.If you are researching a specific legal issue, KeySearch identifies terms and underlying concepts most relevant to your legal issue and creates a query to help you retrieve reported cases, as well as law reviews and unpublished cases.KeyCite helps you determine whether a case or statute is good law. The status is indicated by little flag or letter icons which link to direct history, citing references, and other relevant documents.
