Law Library

Books/Treatises

 

Secondary sources are works that are not the law but discuss or analyze legal doctrine. Treatises and law journal articles are secondary sources. Secondary sources are often the best place to begin legal research as they can help to clarify legal issues and lead to primary as well as other secondary materials.

Classification System

The law library uses the Library of Congress (LC) classification system to organize its treatise and reference materials.  It seems our main collection's entire treatise collection's call numbers are K- or KF-something because the LC system assigns materials for law call numbers beginning with K; KF is specifically for law of the United States; KFN is specifically for law of New Hampshire.
