Welcome!

Welcome to the 2020 edition of the MacMillan Law Library’s Summer RA Workshop LibGuide.  This guide has been created to help the Summer RAs of 2020 find answers to some of our most Frequently Answered Questions covered during the 3-hour workshop held on May 27, 2020.  

Each workshop presenter has created a tab in this guide that includes information about the topic discussed.  Some tabs also include additional information, explanations, and links beyond what was covered in our short time together.  

If you can’t find the answers here, contact information is available within each tab as well as in our Staff Directory located on our website. 

If you have a specific research related question, remember one-on-one research consultations are available all summer long using this form.
