This guide serves multiple purposes:
1) To assist students who are writing journal comments/notes, seminar papers, or independent research process succeed throughout the scholarly research and writing process, including topic selection, preemption checks, conducting scholarly research, and avoiding plagiarism;
2) To suggest resources to aid journal members in cite-checking articles; and
3) To describe services that the law library provides to students who are members of a law review or law journal at Texas Tech University School of Law.
If you have questions about the scholarly research process or finding resources, please contact Professor Drake or stop by the Reference Desk to see the reference librarian on duty. We are happy to set up a time to meet for a research consult on your paper topic.
