The April Showers Edition HLS Library

Bathroom Reader
Research Guide of the Month
Say you want to compare the laws of all 50 states on a specific topic. Unless you have a different idea of fun than we do, you probably don’t want to look them up one by one. In many cases, someone may have already created a 50–state survey on your topic. Use our guide to 50–state surveys to find it fast: hlsl50ss. For research guides to even more topics, see http://bit. ly/hlslguides. In case you hit your quota, remember the New York Times is available in library databases, including LexisNexis and Westlaw. If you’re looking for older material, ProQuest Historical newspapers covers the Times 1923–2007. There’s also a print copy in the casual reading area in the Lemann Lounge. Curious about the intersection of legal info and technology? If your answer is yes, then you should come to LATCamp! Law and Technology Camp is a one–day unconference hosted at HLS on May 16. We welcome everyone involved with legal education in New England– students, professors, librarians, and technologists. For more information and registration, visit How do you spell a problem like ?
