Finding Interdisciplinary Materials for Law Papers

Law Review and journal notes as well as upper-level requirement papers can be enhanced by using materials from other disciplines. There are three ways to find non-legal databases:

Many of the databases can be accessed off-campus with a CSU ID number and Scholar PIN.

Writing a paper about forensics? Check out MEDLINE with Full Text (an EBSCO subset of PubMed). If you are unsure what topical database to use, you can try a general database such as Academic Search Complete or ArticleFirst and/or ask a librarian for help. Finally, don’t forget news sources that are found on Westlaw, Lexis, and Bloomberg along with news sources in CSU Main Library’s Alphabetical List of Databases.
