Library Guide for Law Journal Students

Using the D'Angelo Law Library

Finding Books

To locate books, follow this 4-step process:

  1. Search the Library Catalog to see if the title is available through the University of Chicago Library. The catalog record will let you know if the book is available as an ebook through an ebook platform or via HathiTrust Emergency Temporary Access Service (ETAS).
  2. If the book is only available in print, you can place a request to schedule contactless pickup of the book in the D'Angelo Law Library.
  3. If you only need a portion or chapter of a book that the Library owns, you can place a Scan & Deliver request to get a PDF of that section.
  4. If the Library does not own a particular book, you can place an interlibrary loan request to get the book, or a scanned portion of the book, from another institution.

Finding Law Journal Articles

If you know the name of a specific journal and want to find the full text of articles, search the E-journals list or the Library Catalog by the name of the journal. Below are the core sources for full text of law journal articles.

Finding Non-Law Journals

For interdisciplinary work, start with Articles Plus. It contains articles from over 40,000 journals. If you are looking for articles from a specific journal, use the E-journals list, the Library Catalog, or Find-It! buttons to find full-text in a Library database.

Use Database Finder to locate Library databases in a particular subject. You can search by database title or browse by subject.
