Materials listed in these research guides can be accessed in several ways:
Click on the link. This will either take you to the source or to our catalog listing for a particular book. The catalog listing will provide the call number and show whether something is checked out. For LexisNexis and Westlaw, you will need to enter your login information. If you are off-campus, you will need to enter your credentials (the same ones you use to logon to a computer on campus) to access the resource.
Go to the designated location. For resources we have in print or other hard copy, the guide will list a location or call number. See boxes to the right for specific location information.
As always, if you have any questions, please ask at the Information Desk.
