WestlawNext at the WI State Law Library

This morning as part of our National Library Week celebration we are hosting a class on using WestlawNext in the Wisconsin State Law Library (WSLL). We added WestlawNext access to our public computers a year ago. At the same time we set up wireless access to it from your personal mobile computers when you connect to the WSLL wifi.

Read our WestlawNext FAQ to get started. WestlawNext searches can start out resembling a Google search, with one keyword-friendly search box promoted as the primary search portal for all of Westlaw's databases, books, and collections.

Once you've done your search, check our tips for narrowing search results in WestlawNext. Filtering results is an easy way to narrow your search results to only the types of materials you want. For example, you can filter your search results down to just articles and books on Wisconsin law.

While today's class is full, you can always request that we offer the class again. Contact Heidi Yelk, Director of Reference, to request that a class be added to our schedule
