When pulling sources for cite checking, look at the following as well as use the resources listed farther below:
There are many treatises available through Lexis, Westlaw, and Bloomberg Law.
Always check UCLID first to see if a book is available in our library or another UC library. Note that even if checking out a book for a UC journal, YOU and not the journal are responsible for that book. Be sure and renew and return your books as needed.
When you find a title through UCLID, the online catalog, that is owned by another library:
The book will be delivered to the Law Library and you will receive an email in your UC email account when it comes. Be aware that it may take 3 or more days to arrive. Note that if your pick-up location and request location are the same, the request is not processed. In other words, if a book is available in the law library, do not request it. Instead retrieve the book yourself and check it out.
If a book you want is not available at UC, you may be able to find and borrow it through the OhioLINK. Be sure and check UCLID first. OhioLINK is also accessible through UCLID (click the search OhioLINK button)
