LAW 100 & LAW 316: U.S. Supreme Court: Background Info

Professor Philip Benesch, Spring 2020.

Background Information

Reference sources are invaluable.  They provide the following types of information on virtually any topic:

  • Reliable background information;
  • Factual overviews;
  • Articles written by subject experts;
  • Dates, timelines, events, people related to your topic;
  • Statistics;
  • A list of further readings, normally found at the end of encylopedia articles.  Use these references as a springboard for further research.

Reference sources may be found in REF (1st floor) OR in the regular collection (2nd and Ground floors).


Print reference (REF) sources are located on the main floor of the library, behind the DVD's.
