BadgerLink Quick Research Guides

Legal research databases are essential tools for any practitioner. We round out our legal research standards of HeinOnline, Index to Legal Periodicals, and LegalTrac with journals and newspapers available through BadgerLink

BadgerLink is a statewide collection of magazines, newspapers, and scholarly articles available to all Wisconsin residents. Several of these are linked through our website and catalog and can be accessed with your library card

Because your time is valuable, BadgerLink created several quick start Info Sheets for those who need a quick introduction to a database before starting a research project. Get Info Sheets, videos, and more on BadgerLink's training page
