The purpose of the Guide is simple and straightforward: to enable users of this Library to locate more easily those materials which may be relevant to the subject of their inquiry. This guide does not purport to take the place of those well-known treatises on how to set about legal research (see page 15). On the other hand, it does more than simply tell the user where books are in the Library. It explains how these books are used, what their advantages and limitations are, and what other works exist in the same or similar fields.
