LEGAL RESEARCH INTRODUCTION
The Legal Research Center (LRC) at TCC NE Campus collection consists of primary and secondary sources of the laws of the State of Texas and laws of United States government in print format. Additionally, The LRC has access to a small collection of electronic online databases that provides digital, full test access to authoritative federal state and international legal material. Recently electronic books have been added to the collection and may be accessed remotely from any Internet connection using your WedAdvisor credentials
The print collection is available for 'in library' use by students, faculty, professionals, administrators, staff and the public at large. The electronic, online database collection may be accessed online on any TCCD campus as well remotely. Currently, remote access is available only to TCCD students, faculty, administrators and staff. The user ID and password needed to access the databases remotely is the same user ID and password issued by the college to individuals with current affiliation to TCCD. At this time there are no provisions for a “guest password”.
