Online legal research: The A to Z electronic title list

February 4th, 2013 No comments

One of the research sources you may notice on the Widener Law Library web page is the A to Z Electronic Title List. But what is it for?

It’s definitely one of my favorite¬† sources we have available here at Widener and makes my research a lot easier. Say you need to find an article in Business Lawyer, or the Harvard Law Review, or Health Affairs. It must be available somewhere online but where? Is it on Lexis, Westlaw, ProQuest or EbscoHost? Just go to the Widener Law Library web page, click on A to Z Electronic Title List, and type in the title of the journal you are looking for. You’ll get a list of online sources where you can read the journal. Just click on the one you want and you’ll have access to the journal.
