Search the Library Catalog for Ebooks and Print Books

Search for the book's title or author in the library catalog to find links to any ebooks and information on where to locate print books: 

In the catalog, you can easily see how a resource is held. If a book is held in the library, you will see a call number and general location of the text. If a book is available online or as an ebook, you will see where to access it: 


Bloomberg, CEB, Lexis, and Westlaw generally do not provide PDFs of their books. To obtain PDFs, you must access their books in print and scan them.

For print books, the catalog will provide you with the call number where you can locate the book. If you have any problems finding a book, please ask for help at the front desk or reference desk.

If a book isn't available from Loyola, the law review can likely get it from another library using interlibrary loan.

Search the Book in WorldCat

If a book is not available in the LLS/LMU Catalog, you can search WorldCat to determine which libraries hold the resource. You can use this information as part of your interlibrary loan (ILL) request. 

For example, let's look for the book Roman Law and Economics. The book does not appear in the LLS and LMU catalogs, but we can use WorldCat to locate libraries that do have this title. 

UC Irvine and Stanford are the closest libraries that hold this book. We can also click on Show More Information to get some additional information that would help fill out our ILL request. The OCLC number is particularly helpful to note.
