Welcome to the Guide to Basic Legal Research!

Where to find the legal resources in print at the RU library:

Most of the print sources in the Roosevelt University Library's collection are kept in the downtown campus library. Many of the print resources are reference books (marked REF in the call number in our catalog) and can only be used in the library. The legal resources are shelved in the room behind the circulation, reference and computer lab area on the 10th floor.
