Academic law librarians must teach law students the legal-research skills they will need both now and in the future. Furthermore, legal-research instruction should be consistent with a variety of learning styles in order to help all students learn more effectively and efficiently. This article discusses methods and tools that can be used to engage different learning styles, extend the learning environment beyond the classroom without unduly burdening the professor or student, and help students transfer what they learn to future legal research situations.
Keywords: legal-research instruction, transfer of skills, knowledge mapping, learning styles, accessibility
