Connect @ Your Law Library
National Library Week, April 14-20, 2013
More Wisconsin residents have access to the internet and more primary law and case research resources are available for free online than ever before.
But few Wisconsin residents have access to legal training that can help them find and understand the law.
Librarians at the Wisconsin State Law Library take pride in boosting equal access to the law - through one-on-one help, education, and outreach. This week as we celebrate National Library Week we invite you to take a moment to connect with your law library.
Use our website, sign up for a library card, or come into the library to use our suite of databases - including WestlawNext now available on our computer network and on YOUR computer through our wireless network!
So how can you celebrate National Library Week?
