SCOPE: This research guide is not all-inclusive. It does, however, present resources available at the California Western library and online regarding legal issues associated with animal rights and welfare. It is designed to provide the researcher with guidance as to the location of materials dealing with this subject.

Additional research can be conducted by using the KIM system, legal periodical indices, and other finding aids. Access to licensed databases is limited to students and faculty at California Western.

We welcome suggestions for improvement on this and other research guides. Please consult the Reference Librarian with suggestions and further research questions. This research guide was originally compiled December 1998. It was most recently revised on July 2006.
