Find articles, books, and more
(Note: additional content available in other databases.)
SuperSearch provides access to many full-text online materials and all of the Drake libraries print holdings. For print materials, SuperSearch indicates whether Law or Cowles owns an item, its location and call number, and if it is checked out or on the shelf.
Search for journal articles from the main or advanced interface or by clicking the Journal Finder link.
See the library's SuperSearch guide for instructions and tips, including how to find an article by citation.
What if I Can't Access the Article Through Drake?
If after checking the journal finder you determine the full text of an article isn't available on campus, you can request that the Law Library borrow a copy from another library through Interlibrary Loan.
