This guide is based on one prepared by Legal Information Service to the Public (LISP), a special interest section of the American Association of Law Libraries. It is intended to help a person find laws, case materials, legislation, and other legal materials that help resolve an issue, prevent a conflict, or generally educate.   While the resources listed are geared to the Wheat Law Library, the basic information and free Internet links can be used by anyone.
