Federal Administrative Law Research Guide: Using the Library Catalog to find Books and Articles

Resources for researching federal Administrative Law.

The UC Hastings Library Catalog

Search the Hastings Online Catalog for print and electronic titles, databases and articles at the Hastings Law Library. Be sure to use keyword searches for broad topics. Once you have narrowed down to a LC subject heading, use subject searches to find all materials under your subject.

You can search WorldCat  to find out if any books exist on your topic at local and worldwide libraries. If you find a book on your topic that we don't have at Hastings, you can submit a request to borrow the book through interlibrary loan (ILL). Simply click on the "Request Item through Interlibrary Loan" button. It can take up to two weeks to get books through ILL, so plan ahead.

If you find a book that looks interesting, and you are not on campus, click on the Call Number to browse titles on the shelf nearby. If you're on campus, browsing the shelves is a great way to find relevant books.
