Underutilized tool

As you finish up your papers for the semester, we are getting some questions on finding some background on some interesting topics. Sometimes full text searching for law review articles just pulls up far too many irrelevant articles. If that is the case, or if you have a very current issue, remember to use a legal periodicals index. My particular favorite is Index to Legal Periodicals-Wilson, available under Article Finding off of the Library's Online Resources page.

Another index that is just as good is LegalTrac - also under Article Finding.

Happy hunting and good luck on exams!!
