This guide is designed to give students an overview of agriculture law and research resources related to agriculture law.

About This Guide

Using a research guide is a great way to start researching a new or unfamiliar topic.  Research guides are not exhaustive lists of available material in a given field, instead they highlight works available in the library's collection as well as provide examples of resources a user may find helpful.  Research guides may also contain research tips and information about a specific library’s policies, and collection.  The user should always check the date a research guide was last updated to ensure finding current material.  Listed below are links to some other guides that you may find useful:
