SuperSearch is a good starting point for finding additional resources. It lets you find books and other tangible resources at both the Cowles and Law Libraries. It also includes content from many, but not all, of the libraries' databases.
Librarians can provide additional search guidance. Current Drake faculty, staff, and students: use your Drake email account to email us a request for reference assistance. (PC/Mac/Android user link. iPhone/iPad user link.) Librarians will respond during business hours.
