Lyonette Louis-Jacques has provided a summary of Nontraditional Indexes to Law Journal Articles
"Users sometimes want to find law journal articles on a particular subject. Other users know the title of the article they need, but they don’t know what law journal published the article. And sometimes users want to find all the articles an author has published, when the author has published articles in many journals and even in a variety of languages. They can consult standard journal indexes, but other, nontraditional indexes such as the OPACs and databases described below can be useful for more comprehensive and/or up-to-date searches"
Her article covers sources such as:
- Peace Palace Library at the Hague
- United Nations catalogues
- European Commission libraries
- European Court of Human Rights
- Max Planck Institute for Comparative Public Law and International Law
- SSRN Legal Scholarship Network
- and many many more
Louis-Jacques is the Foreign and International Law Librarian and Lecturer in Law at the University of Chicago Law School D’Angelo Law Library.
