study aidsThe library has a great collection of study aids located in the room right behind the reference desk. Study aids can be checked out for 3 days. Please return them on time as your fellow students will be waiting for them!

Some of the most popular study aids we have are the Examples and Explanations series and the Understanding series. But we have many more!

A new study guide series we started buying a few years ago that proved popular with students is the Glannon Guide series.  Glannon Guides contain sample multiple choice questions with explanations of why each answer choice is right or wrong.

Online legal research: HeinOnline

February 11th, 2013 No comments

HeinOnline is another great online research source available to you through the Widener Law Library webpage. You may have used HeinOnline to access law review articles but it has a lot more to offer. It’s particularly good for historic research because it has all state and federal session laws, Federal Registers, Code of Federal Regulations, Restatements of the Law and much more. They also have a nice app for iPhone and iPad that makes it easy to read law reviews on your iPad.

Online legal research: The A to Z electronic title list

February 4th, 2013 No comments

One of the research sources you may notice on the Widener Law Library web page is the A to Z Electronic Title List. But what is it for?

It’s definitely one of my favorite  sources we have available here at Widener and makes my research a lot easier. Say you need to find an article in Business Lawyer, or the Harvard Law Review, or Health Affairs. It must be available somewhere online but where? Is it on Lexis, Westlaw, ProQuest or EbscoHost? Just go to the Widener Law Library web page, click on A to Z Electronic Title List, and type in the title of the journal you are looking for. You’ll get a list of online sources where you can read the journal. Just click on the one you want and you’ll have access to the journal.

Due to spammers, CALI has banned all user accounts with Hotmail email addresses from their website. So if you were still using that old Hotmail account to sign up for CALI, read their instructions on how to update your account or set up a new one.
