Free,Low-Cost, and New Legal Research Sites: Surveying the Landscape

A Webinar Presented by Ann Unger (Dickie McCamey) and Sarah Steers

We will be taking a look at “lower cost” alternatives like CaseMaker and Fastcase and free sites like Google Scholar and newer offerings like Ravel and Pacer Pro.

  • How are these accessed and how do they “perform”?
  • How may research practices be affected by them now and in the future?
  • How might their use change the dynamic between librarians and their research customers be changed?
  • What are some of the cool new offerings out there?
