Careful, if you admit you first encountered the line "well begun is halfway done" watching the original Mary Poppins movie, you may be aging yourself. But the line is a very apt part of the title of a new article by Shawn Nevers, a law librarian at Brigham Young University: "Legal Encyclopedias: Research ‘Well Begun’". Here's the abstract:
"Finding a good place to start makes a big difference in how quickly and productively you research. Written for Student Lawyer magazine, this column examines an important starting point in legal research – the legal encyclopedia. With broad topic coverage, legal encyclopedias can often provide the background information needed to put students and lawyers down the path of a successful research project."
