Introducing DRAGNET

The Mendik Library recently unveiled DRAGNET (Database Retrieval Access using Google’s New Electronic Technology), a custom search tool that allows users to search simultaneously in more than 80 free, law-related web sites and databases.

DRAGNET searches general law sites as well as sites containing legal news, foreign and international law, tax law, cyber law and other law-related materials.  It also searches a large number of state and local government sites. Search results are limited to the 100 most relevant hits, so users are encouraged to use very specific search terms.  Librarians at the Mendik Library developed DRAGNET using Google’s free custom search option.

For questions or suggestions about DRAGNET, please contact systems librarian Terry Ballard at .
