Search for Scholarly Articles

Search several databases at once with the Summon search service!

Can't find what you're looking for?

To find books or articles not available in the Jennings Library, use inter-library loan (ILL) or VALE Reciprocal Borrowing.

If the Library doesn't have a book or article you need, we can most likely get it through interlibrary loan.

  • Log on to Jennings ILL and submit an interlibrary loan request.

For more information see the library's guide to Jennings ILL

Another option is to use VALE Reciprocal Borrowing. To borrow directly from other academic libraries, you must first visit our Information Desk (hours) to obtain a form to take with you to the participating library.

Law Reviews and Journals

Law reviews and journals are scholarly journals that provide analysis of legal issues.  Law review articles can be a good starting point for research, particularly on newer issues that aren't discussed in legal encyclopedias or other print sources.  They also provide references to relevant statutes and cases.
