Researching Your Note

Student note authors should make an appointment to meet with a research librarian as early in their research as possible. Chicago-Kent Law Review staff are assigned a librarian liaison early in the fall semester; staff who have not been assigned a liaison can visit the Reference Desk or the Reference Office any time to make an appointment, or contact a librarian by sending an email to refreq@kentlaw.iit.edu. Your librarian liaison will steer you toward library resources that will be useful for your research. Your liaison is available for follow-up meetings as needed.

Obtaining Materials for Cite-checking

The Library can assist editors of Chicago-Kent’s law reviews by obtaining sources needed for cite-checking. In most cases, consortial relationships allow the Library to obtain sources at no cost to the review. Editors may contact interlibrary loan staff by sending an email to illreq@kentlaw.iit.edu to learn more about how the Library can help.

Guidance for Cite-checkers

Research librarians are available to assist cite-checkers with identifying sources, teasing apart citations, etc. Cite-checkers can stop by the service desk for assistance during Reference hours, or contact a librarian by sending an email to refreq@kentlaw.iit.edu.
