Abstract

Not as many law students come to the reference desk as they once did, but sometimes they need help with very challenging questions. This brief essay recounts a search for a case that was made challenging by a typo in the original source and the fact that the case was settled. In the end, the student got the sources she needed, plus a lesson in creative research.

Keywords: law libraries, legal research, reference, law librarians
