When searching for books, first check NUsearch to see if it is available through the Northwestern University library system. If you do not find the book in NUsearch, check WorldCat. You can submit an interlibrary loan request for the item you find on WorldCat, and our library will attempt to borrow it from another library for you.
Search Tips for NUsearch and WorldCat:
To find relevant articles for your research, you should search indexes, full-text current sources, and full-text archives. You can also search NUsearch to efficiently conduct a search across articles contained in various subscription databases (e.g., JSTOR, EBSCOhost Academic Search Complete, etc.) at once.
SSRN and bepress allow scholars in various fields to post articles prior to formal publication, as a means to present their ideas to their colleagues and receive feedback. These resources allow you to view working papers and forthcoming articles. It can take up to a year for an article to be published in a law journal after it is accepted for publication. These resources offer access to scholarship that will be published in the future.
