The MCLL is seeking an intern to update and expand our legal research guides (https://proxy.qualtrics.com/proxy/?url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.mahoningcountyoh.gov%2F905%2FLibrary-Research-Guides&token=qHk3uLsv6g3sSdK1nbkXMzDcCJpk4Q%2BpfrJmB9O1qkw%3D). The legal research guides are intended to be a starting point for anyone who wishes to conduct legal research at the Mahoning County Law Library. It will be the responsibility of the intern to review the current guides for accuracy and currency, to add abstracts to the items listed, and to research to see if there are any additional sources which should be added. The intern may also divide the guide into two or more specific guides if warranted. The library is also looking to add new guides to cover additional legal research areas. The intern should plan on completing at least one guide during his or her internship.
