A Research Tip

  • Research & Writing

My very first Slaw Tip back in January 2011 was titled Read that URL. Today’s tip is a reminder of that along with a twisty question.

  1. Libraries provide links to web sources (The sources are things on the web which means they move around)
  2. Libraries update their links when websites move (Quickly, because we use the links that we provide for our own research work)  
  3. Why are you keeping extensive bookmarks that you have to update yourself?

Read the URL you are navigating to AND don’t waste your time looking for things that are on your firm’s intranet or your local law library links page.  Don’t have an intranet at your shop? Check out the Practice Portals from the Courthouse Libraries BC for a great example of link collecting work that you can leave to others.
