TOPICAL DATABASES AND ONLINE LOOSELEAFS


As noted, many publishers have made the information included in print looseleaf services available in keyword searchable electronic databases, and some libraries have elected to provide electronic access only in order to avoid the constant interfiling needed to keep print looseleaf services up to date. Many of these databases contain the same wealth of both background information and analysis along with the full text of primary legal materials as was traditionally found in print looseleafs. Many such databases feature both Google-style default keyword searching across types of materials as well as advanced searching options that allow Boolean and field restricted searching. Though these topical databases may seem daunting at first, they tend to include tutorials and help features that can assist a beginner in learning to use them effectively.
