The Law Book Talks: Library Instruction for Use of Legal Materials by Undergraduates and The Law Book Talks: A Video Tape Script.
Campbell, Douglas G.
This program of instruction in legal research for undergraduate students was developed to help an academic library provide effective support to 16 undergraduate courses dealing primarily with the law. Due to the complexity of the subject matter and the organization of the legal materials, instruction in legal research and the use of the law collection was ascertained to be necessary. The nine short videotapes that constitute the program explain and provide examples of basic beginning legal research; they may be used for either self-paced or group instruction. This document presents the scripts for the nine videotapes: (1) Introduction to Legal Materials; (2) Legal Citations; (3) Legal Dictionaries and Encyclopedias; (4) Law Digests; (5) Citators; (6) Reporters (Federal cases and State cases; (7) Federal Statutes; (8) Wisconsin Statutes; and (9) Administrative Law. A guide and flow chart support the scripts. Copies of the 9-18 minute tapes are on reserve in Forrest R. Polk Library for self-paced use. Presentation of the written materials are sometimes scheduled for classes as requested by teaching faculty. (THC)
