Widener Law Commonwealth Faculty and Adjunct Guide

This guide is specific to resources available on the Harrisburg campus.

Librarian Guest Lectures

The reference librarians can be called upon to make classroom presentations on bibliographic resources or to provide selected subject bibliographies. 

Each year the reference librarians team up with the professors for Legal Methods.  They conduct in-class training and provide additional research training time to coincide with the basic techniques of legal analysis, writing and research.

If you would like to have a reference librarian present in-class or provide training outside of class, please contact us.

Reference and Research Assistance


The reference librarians are available to assist with research techniques, computer-assisted legal research, questions about the collection and interlibrary loan. 

Below is a suggested topic list of individual training provided by one of the reference librarians.  This is not an exhaustive list, but rather is intended to highlight some possible topics which may be helpful to you.  If you have a particular need not listed here, please do not hesitate to contact us.

  • Lexis Refresher
  • Westlaw Refresher
  • Canvas and TWEN course webpage creation
  • Finding legislative documents
  • BePress / Selected Works / SSRN

The reference librarians are available to assist faculty with their research needs. Full-time faculty should feel free to contact their library liaison directly.  Reference librarians are also available to help adjunct faculty with course related research.  Adjunct faculty should feel free to contact the Information Desk to speak with a librarian.
