Law Journal Staff Research Guide

Resources of particular interest to law journal student editors.

Tech Resources

Printing:  The computer lab (Klein 320, accessible via the Student Research Lab) has a printer for journal students' use.

Scanning:  The law library has a scanner on the third floor that is free to use.

Online tools are available to help organize your materials; the ones listed below are only some of the myriad available.  Temple University supports RefWorks, Mendeley, EndNote, and Zotero (see here for more information).  You may want to try a few to see which best fits your style and needs. 

  • PowerNotes (Temple Law Library subscription)
    PowerNotes allows you to extract text from documents or webpages and organize it, with notes, under your customized topics and subtopics.  PowerNotes automatically saves the citation information.

  • RefWorks
    RefWorks allows to you upload and sort documents, highlight and comment on text within the document, and add notes or tags to entire documents.  It works with many academic databases but not Lexis, Westlaw, or many webpages.

  • Mendeley
    Mendeley makes it easy to upload and sort documents, highlight and comment on text within the document, and add notes or tags to entire documents.  Like RefWorks, Mendeley cannot retrieve documents directly from Lexis or Westlaw.
