More on Finding Legal Research Guides

This is an update to the February 2, 2007 Library Boy post entitled New Legal Research Engine that described a new Legal Research Engine launched by Cornell University to help users find research guides on legal topics from some 20 authoritative sources.

BoleyBlogs!, the blog published by the Law Library at the Lewis and Clark University in Portland, Oregon, has also drawn attention to another meta source for legal research guides: Law Scout from the University of Akron Law School in Ohio. It offers subject access to all the pathfinders and guides from over 130 law schools and other institutions.

It uses the Scout Portal Toolkit developed by the University of Wisconsin.

As with the Cornell search tool, content is U.S.-centric of course.

Creating this kind of custom search engine/portal for Canadian law library guides sounds just like the perfect project for some intrepid Canadian law librarian out there... Hmmm
