Update to Westlaw’s Secondary Sources

Share this article

Westlaw recently updated the layout of its secondary source section, as well as made changes to the navigation of some secondary sources.

When you select Secondary Sources from the content tab of Westlaw’s home screen, you will now be taken to a list of all secondary sources. You may narrow to a particular subset of secondary sources by using the facets along the left side of the page. You may also “favorite” secondary sources that you would like to appear at the top of the secondary sources page.

Some resources will also offer a different user experience than in the past. You will be able to select “Reading Mode” to scroll through the publication, versus advancing section by section using arrows. The Table of Contents is also displayed on the left side of the page so you can quickly navigate to other sections of the resource.
