This research guide is designed to help students, faculty, and other members of the Law Center community in research beyond traditional legal research. In many instances, scholarly and practical legal research calls upon a researcher to broaden their scope into looking beyond traditional legal research tools. This guide is designed to help users find those resources. The websites and resources listed in this guide are available to all GULC students, faculty and staff. Note: for off-campus access to many of these resources and databases, users must log into the library system through My Library Account.

Many of the non-legal databases included in this guide contain abstracts of articles, not the full-text. The library has a growing collection of non-legal books and some non-legal journals indexed in these databases; however, many articles or reports will not be available at the Law Library. In order to find the articles indexed, you may want to visit Lauinger Library on the Main Campus or the Library of Congress. Books and articles not available at the Law Library can also be requested through Interlibrary Loan.
