WI State Law Library Creates Foreclosure Tutorial

The Wisconsin State Law Library has created a tutorial on foreclosure.
From WSLL @ Your Service:

With the current economic situation, many people have been forced to deal with the issue of home foreclosure and are looking for information. In response, the State Law Library has created an online tutorial, Help! I’m Facing Foreclosure. The page includes a brief (under 3 minutes) video directing people to sources of information and assistance, and links to the websites of relevant agencies and organizations. Attorneys and librarians alike may find this to be a useful resource for their clients and library patrons.
