Alternative research resources should be used as a starting point before moving into subscription databases such as Westlaw or Lexis. For those who do not have access to Westlaw or Lexis, these resources can be used as alternatives. These resources also provide information that is not available through Westlaw or Lexis, particularly state, municipal, and city information.
When you first encounter a source, try to find its advanced search function and/or its help page. Both of these pages will provide additional information about the source, as well as give you clues as to how the source searches information and what is available through it.
If you are having trouble using any of these resources, contact a librarian.
