1L Success - Resources for Succeeding in Law School: Finding a Book (Treatise) in the Library

Search the Library Catalog

Finding a Book (Treatise) in the Library

Use the online catalog search box in the search screen to the left of this box to find books and journal titles in the library's collection (Refer to the tab "Finding Journal Articles" to find articles).  When you perform a search in the library's catalog you are performing a search of the library collections of the undergraduate and graduate library located on the Chester, PA campus as well as searching the law collections located on the Wilmington, DE and Harrisburg, PA campuses.  A search can be modified to search only the law library collection.  Any materials housed in the Harrisburg campus library will be indicated with the letter "H" in the location field of the record.  You can request that materials not located in the Harrisburg library be sent to you by clicking on the "Request" link located at the top of the search results screen.  Search by Title, Author, Subject, or Keyword to find materials.


If you are looking for an article, you need to consult an online index such as LegalTrac, Index to Legal Periodicals, or HeinOnline to find the article.  You can also search LEXIS or Westlaw for articles.
