This guide will help you get started with general legal research. You can use Getting Started to find out where to go to get good overviews and quick information – this is a particularly useful place to start if you don’t know a lot about your topic. Find Books/Media and Find Articles help you figure out how to use our catalog (for books and videos) and our databases (for articles from scholarly and/or popular journals, newspapers, etc). Find Articles also takes you to a list of the best legal databases. Find Cases leads you to full text of cases from federal and state court systems and to sources that identify cases on a topic. Find Laws lists statutory law materials, and there is also a page for International Law. How Do I covers common questions you may have, such as “How do I get things that aren’t at Hunter Library?”
