  • LOCATING JOURNAL ARTICLES
    There are different methods to use to locate journal articles
    If you have the Citation details(know the title of the journal, dates etc) the most straightforward way is to use the library catalogue-see the next few slides

  • AVAILABILITY OF PRINT COPY
    • The information here tells us that the Library holds ‘PRINT’ copies back to 1937(RESERVE-so Ask at the Transactions Counter for them)
    • The PRINT copies , 1979-present , are available in the Law Library on the 2nd floor of the Sheppard Library

  • PRINT JOURNALS
    • The Journals in the law library may be used anywhere in the Sheppard Library but unlike the textbooks they may not be borrowed
    • There are photocopiers throughout the building and students may make one copy for their own use

  • HEINONLINE
    Heinonline is essentially used to locate legal journal articles. It does NOT provide information on Cases(Modern) or Legislation(also known as Acts or Statutes)
    It does provide access to a series called “The English Reports” which gives access to Cases pre 1865 only
