PowerPoint Presentation:

Facing a sea of information? Here’s how to find what you are looking for in the probono.net/la library.

PowerPoint Presentation:

The online Civil Law Library of probono.net/la is vast. It’s good to have so much to choose from so long as you can find your way. Here are some tips.

PowerPoint Presentation:

Step one: go to www.probono.net/la . Log in.

PowerPoint Presentation:

Can’t remember your password? The site will send it to you.

PowerPoint Presentation:

Enter the e-mail address you used to subscribe with and the system will e-mail your password to you.

PowerPoint Presentation:

Step two: go to the Civil Law page (red outline) and select Library from the ribbon near the top of the page.

PowerPoint Presentation:

There are at least three ways to search the online library. Folders! Topics! Advanced search – not as hard as it sounds!

PowerPoint Presentation:

The library opens automatically to display resources in folders. The most general way to search for resources is to scroll down the list of folders to find the one that relates to your topic.

PowerPoint Presentation:

Method Two: You can also search by topic by clicking “topic.”

PowerPoint Presentation:

Now you will see a more detailed list of subjects and subtopics. The number in parentheses shows how many items are in the library about that topic or subtopic.

PowerPoint Presentation:

Method Three: the search box and the Advanced Search function.

PowerPoint Presentation:

Entering a search term alone will scour the entire site for items that include the word or term, and you may have to dig through many results. This is not the best way to use the site’s search function. Go to “Advanced Search.”

PowerPoint Presentation:

On the Advanced Search page you can enter a search term and narrow the search by topic, by area of site or by when the item was posted.

PowerPoint Presentation:

Here are examples.

PowerPoint Presentation:

This month’s tech tip!
