Not Necessarily Google

Published on: Author: Teresa L

Lots of students come in for research assistance and when we ask them what their strategy has been they respond, “Well, I searched Google.” But sometimes Google isn’t the best place to start, it all depends on what you’re looking for. There are many documents besides legal ones on Westlaw and LexisNexis; both of their search engines are easier to use, they are more sophisticated, and they produce more honest results. If you need help with your LexisNexis research, Debbie is on campus hanging out in 1M everyday. If you’d like to schedule an appointment with her, login to LexisNexis, click the Myschool tab, scroll to the bottom of the page and choose a day/time.
