It is important to note that the Public Interest Law subject heading does not always appear as a main entry when researching. A good example of this occurred when looking at the reference resource: "The Legal Information Buyers Guide". For such entries, the Legal Profession subject heading was used as an access point to locate Public Interest Law materials.
