by PSL Law Library 28. October 2011 16:30

Are you writing an AWR? Are you having trouble finding everything you need in Westlaw and Lexis?  By now, you have probably already exhausted Westlaw and Lexis in your AWR research. 

Come to this workshop to learn about all of the other sources that are available through the library website. Bring your questions! Half of this fifty minute workshop will be a demonstration of research databases, and the other half devoted to answering your specific questions! 

See you Friday, November 11th from 12:00 – 12:50pm in the law library computer lab.

RSVP here.

Using CALI From TWEN Courses

by Sarah Prosory 10. October 2011 12:07

Hello students!

Your professors may have recommended CALI lessons within your TWEN courses. Many students have noted some issues when using CALI from TWEN. The thing to remember is that you need to login to CALI once you arrive at the CALI website to access the lesson. TWEN does not have the same login as CALI. TWEN does not share who you are with CALI. So you need to follow 3 simple steps:

1. Within your TWEN course, choose the CALI lesson you'd like to take:

 

 

2. Login to CALI. (Don't have a CALI account? You'll need the student code found here. Please call or email the reference desk if you need help: 602-682-6898 or library@phoenixlaw.edu).

 

3. Once you login, you'll see the green play button. Choose the button to access the lesson.
