Find a Journal
March 20, 2007 at 3:43 PM
When you have a citation to a journal article, but cannot find the article on Lexis or Westlaw, you may wonder where to look next. A journals database available on the Interim/University Library website is a convenient next step, particularly because it has recently been expanded to include print holdings in the Heafey Law Library and the remote storage facility in Loyola Hall. The University Library’s print and electronic journals, on topics ranging from anthropology to women’s studies, have been included in the database all along.
To access this journals database, click on "Find a Journal" from the Heafey Law Library website’s list of Electronic Resources. (If you are at the University Library website, click on Electronic and Print Journals by Title and Subject.) Search for the journal title you need (by beginning words, exact title, words in the title, or ISSN number) or browse the journals list by title or subject. When you do find a journal title in the database, you’ll also find links to the relevant OSCAR record(s) and to HeinOnline, LexisNexis Academic, and other subscription databases that include your journal.
The law school subscribes to some databases that are not available to persons who are not affiliated with the law school, notably Westlaw and Lexis (a more complete version than LexisNexis Academic). You will not find links to these databases in the University Library’s journals database or in OSCAR. So, check the University Library’s journals database after you’ve looked for your journal on Lexis and Westlaw.
If you’re not finding the journal resources that you need, please ask at the reference desk. If we can’t find the article you need on campus, we’ll be happy to help you submit an interlibrary loan request.
