Mary Whisner, Researching Outside the Box, 95 Law Libr. J. 467 (2003), https://digitalcommons.law.uw.edu/librarians-articles/48
Law Library Journal
Ms. Whisner demonstrates that many law-related projects require law students and lawyers to use skills that are outside the core legal research skills which they learn early in law school. She argues that law librarians need to be familiar with the skills and sources of disciplines other than the law and be prepared to guide-or push if necessary-patrons outside the box when appropriate.
