Sometimes it can be challenging to know how to delve into a new topic or research interest. Time is in short supply and the profusion of information sources can take considerable effort to sift through, let alone absorb. Even sophisticated researchers need concise, scholarly gateways into topics like military justice, medical law, and forensic science, just to name a few.
Oxford University Press created their Very Short Introductions series precisely for this dilemma. As Oxford states, “All titles provide intelligent and serious introductions to a huge range of subjects, written by experts in the field who combine facts, analysis, new ideas, and enthusiasm to make challenging topics highly readable.”
The Law Library provides access to the law-related Very Short Introductions in ebook format.
Many titles are also available in print. To find them in our library catalog, Morris, enter “very short introductions” in a title search.
Please contact the reference desk for more information on Very Short Introductions in print and electronic formats. Librarians can also recommend other helpful resources regardless of whether you are just starting to explore a new topic or are an expert.
