Cover for a textbook: Sources and Strategies for Legal Research by Caroline Osborne

From the publisher's description:

Sources and Strategies of Legal Research, intended for use in first-year legal writing and research courses, offers a new approach to the course subject matter based on the concept that legal analysis is essential to legal research. This concise book is unique in two ways: it places legal analysis as the focal point of legal research; and it departs from the typical source-specific or bibliographical approach, instead taking a process-oriented approach, focusing on search strategies for efficiently and effectively finding information.
