Dispute Resolution


NUSearch, the online discovery tool for the Northwestern University Libraries, is an excellent starting point for locating articles on your topic.  After running your initial search, you may wish to use the filters located in the left-hand menu of the results page (e.g., Format, Creation Date) to narrow your results.  Within specific records, look for an "Online Access" link to retrieve the full-text of the article.  For more advice on using NUSearch, see the "Using the PLRC Catalog" page in this guide.

Google Scholar

Google Scholar is another excellent tool for locating scholarship on dispute resolution topics.  You may use this search box to perform an initial search.

Google Scholar Search

A useful strategy for enhancing the functionality of Google Scholar is to link your search results with the Northwestern University Libraries collection.  Once this is done, "FindIt @ NU" links will appear next to many of your search results.  Selecting these links will connect you with Northwestern University online resources providing the full-text of the article.  The brief video below demonstrates how to complete this process.
