Resource of the Month
March 2007


Each month WSU Libraries' Department of Collection Development features a "Resource of the Month" designed to highlight some of the library's new, interesting, under-used, large, unique, or otherwise noteworthy collections and resources.  You can learn more about the "Resource of the Month" on this website, from the display in the reference area, by attending a workshop (if available), or by contacting the Reference Desk at 978-3584.

How Do I Access Campus Research?

There is a link on the WSU Libraries' website under Electronic Resources / Electronic Databases.  You have the option of looking for it under the subject links or the alphabetic links (http://library.wichita.edu/colldev/electrondatabase.htm).  If you are accessing Campus Research from off-campus you will be prompted to enter your myWSU ID number and password for authentication purposes.

Why Should I Use Campus Research?

Campus Research combines breadth of news and business information with superior depth in law-related information.  It has experts' analysis from hundreds of law reviews and journals, encyclopedias and treatises as well as full-text legislation, regulations and court decisions. 

Campus Research provides several research helpers.  Key Numbers classifies points of law logically and consistently across all U.S. Jurisdictions which simplifies searching.  Using this Key Number system, KeySearch aids in building a precise query.  KeyCite® traces the history of a case, statute, administrative decision, or regulation and verifies whether or not it is still good law.  StatutesPlus links to everything that discusses a particular statute.
