Finding Books and Articles

Books/Journal Titles

Law Library holdings can be searched in the online catalog. The catalog is available wherever you have access to the Internet.

All other Pepperdine University Libraries have a joint online catalog.

If you know the name of a journal, Pepperdine may have access to an electronic version. Use the Journal Search feature on the University Libraries' homepage.

Materials not owned by Pepperdine libraries may be borrowed from other institutions through Interlibrary Loan. If you need assistance searching WorldCat or would like to request materials, contact your library liaison.

If you would like to borrow materials from any of the above catalogs, contact your library liaison.

Journal articles

Individual articles can, of course, be searched in Westlaw or Lexis.

In addition, the Law Library has a subscription to HeinOnline, which includes an extensive collection of law review articles in .pdf format. There is a time lag for materials to be scanned and posted on HeinOnline, so the most recent articles may only be available on Westlaw or Lexis. However, HeinOnline's collection goes back farther than that of Westlaw or Lexis and in almost all cases will contain issues from the beginning of a series. If you would like assistance searching HeinOnline, contact your library liaison.

Non-law articles are available from a variety of electronic databases available to law users through the University Libraries' Online Database page. We have assembled descriptions of some of the more useful databases here.
