Human Rights Quarterly Guide

The purpose of this guide is to provide you with access to the most useful sources for your Human Rights Quarterly cite checking.

Generally

When pulling sources for cite checking, look at the following as well as use the resources listed farther below:

  • For interdisciplinary subjects, check one of the UC Library Subject Guides, http://guides.libraries.uc.edu. The subject guides are developed by UC librarians who specialize in that subject in order to find applicable indexes and full-text sources that you will then need to search. Remember that not everything is electronic! Each subject guide will also have the contact information of the subject specialist who developed that guide.
  • Check to see if someone has written a bibliography for the particular topic. This could be in book or article form. For example, Susan M. Boland & Therese Clarke Arado, O Brave New World - Electronic Voting Machines and Internet Voting: An Annotated Bibliography, 27 N. Ill. U. L. Rev. 313 (2007).

Books available through Lexis, Westlaw & Bloomberg BNA

There are many treatises available through Lexis, Westlaw, and Bloomberg Law.

Search the UC Library Catalog

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:

  • Click on the Request button. 
  • Enter your username and password
  • Select Law Library as your pick-up library
  • Click on the Submit button.

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.

OhioLINK Catalog Search

 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)

If a book you want is not available in UCLID or OhioLINK, you will need to submit an Interlibrary Loan Request.

    • To access advanced WorldCat from Off-Campus, you will need to use VPN
  • Fill out an ILL form with the information you found in WorldCat. Note that the Law Library does not use ILLiad at this time.
