Finding Books at Northwestern University
Finding Books at Other Libraries
WorldCat is a catalog with records from thousands of libraries. It can be used to identify materials not held by Northwestern University. Northwestern University students can place interlibrary loan requests either directly through WorldCat or via the interlibrary loan request form found on the library's home page.
Many subject areas are relevant-- not just law.
Use indexes to identify relevant articles.
"Advanced search" is often easier than "basic search."
Find a relevant citation, then click on "subject headings" or "descriptors" to find more.
"Find it at NU" button often leads to electronic full text.
NUcat "journal title" search leads to print and/or electronic full text.
Finding Articles and Papers on Foreign and Comparative Law (for articles on law of countries other than the U.S. and comparative law methodology, from journals published both in the U.S. and abroad)
Finding Articles and Papers on International Law (for public and private international law)
Find Non-Law Articles (for subjects in the social sciences, humanities, and sciences)
