Posted by Library Blog on 02/11/2011 at 10:40 AM

In addition to the variety of online databases, the Law Library’s collection contains over 225,000 titles in all formats! Materials represented include:

  • Scholarly works on a wide range of topics
  • Topical current awareness services
  • State and federal case reporters
  • State and federal codes
  • Congressional materials
  • Federal agency materials
  • Law reviews and legal newspapers

You might be wondering how does one even begin to locate an item in the collection? The answer to this question is to use the Law Library’s WebCatalog. The WebCatalog enables one to look for items by title, by author, by keyword or by Library of Congress Subject Heading.

One can also determine which edition of a study aid is available or even date of the most recent issue of a legal periodical that the Law Library has received.

For assistance in searching the WebCatalog, do not hesitate to ask the Librarian on duty at the Reference Desk or staff at the Circulation Desk.
