Journal Editor Resources: Researching Comments

This guide is intended to serve as a consolidation of content from several different guides to help Penn Law students as they approach the process of researching and writing a note or comment for their law journal.

Academic Databases

The databases below are frequently used by students in Penn Law seminars. 

More can be found via Biddle Law Library’s E-Resources List, or Penn Libraries' Subject-Specific E-Resources lists of electronic resources according to area of study, including International Relations, Political Science, Business, Economics and Philosophy.

Library Catalogs

Biddle's online catalog contains information on books, journals and other print and electronic materials related to law in the Biddle collection. LOLA records often contain table of contents information, accessible through a Keyword or Title search.  Biddle also offers lists of E-Resources, with databases and websites arranged alphabetically and by subject.

The online catalog of the University of Pennsylvania Library System contains information on books, journals and other materials held in the 13 other campus libraries. Please note that Franklin does not include materials held at Biddle, so these resources must be searched separately through LOLA.

Even more sources held by non-Penn libraries can be identified via OCLC WorldCat and borrowed through the interlibrary loan process.
