Check out the Library’s Blog - Hearsay!

After a hiatus of several years, the Westminster Law Library has revived its blog, Hearsay. We’ll be using the blog to highlight databases, websites, apps and other technology and (yes!) print materials that we think are valuable for legal and other types of research. We’ll also suggest research tips and post news and announcements about research classes and other library events. Check Hearsay regularly from the link on the library’s website (www.law.du.edu/library).
