Often a source of intelligent commentary, journal articles can be quite useful when conducting legal research. There are two major sources for journal articles available through the Seattle University Library system: the A to Z List through the Law Library and the Full Text Electronic Journal List through the Lemieux Library.
The Law Library’s A to Z List is an excellent source for those looking for journal articles on any legal topic. The A to Z list allows access to electronic journals available through West, Lexis, Hein, and LegalTrac. The List provides three methods for accessing articles: a journal title search engine, an alphabetical browsing list, and a topical index. Journal coverage primarily focuses on legal topics, including all major law reviews, along with many relevant sources for legal news and cases. For those without Lexis or Westlaw subscriptions, remember that we have access through computers in the Law Library!
Those looking for a useful source of information on all things non-legal should be sure to examine Lemieux’s Full Text Electronic Journal List. Similar in structure to the A to Z list, the Full Text List provides access to journals through a title search engine, an alphabetical list for browsing, and a topical index. The Full Text list includes refereed academic journals on all major subject areas ranging from the arts and humanities to the natural and social sciences. Coverage is quite comprehensive as all of the published issues of many journals are available through the list.
Combined, these two sources should help to meet all of your legal and non-legal journal research needs!
