Law and Lemieux Libraries

The law library and its catalog should be the first place you look to find copies of print books, law reviews, primary legal sources, government publications and law-related materials from several foreign countries.  You can use the law library Catalog to search for titles held by both the Law and Lemieux Libraries. For additional information about the library's' holdings or using the catalog consult the Catalog Research Guide. If either Lemieux Library or the Law Library has the materials, you are responsible for obtaining them.

Searching Summit Library Consortium Catalog

If you cannot find the sources you need in either the law or Lemieux libraries, you can try searching the Summit catalog. Summit is the shared library catalog of a consortium of 36 colleges and universities in Washington and Oregon. This consortium provides access to over 28 million books, DVDs, videotapes, sound recordings, government documents and significantly expands access to resources. For search tips, refer to the Searching Summit page of the Catalog research guide.
