Finding Books At The Garbrecht Law Library--URSUS

URSUS is the online catalog for the Garbrecht Law Library. It is the shared catalog for the libraries in the University of Maine System, the Maine State Law and Legislative Reference Library, and the Maine State Library. When doing a large research project, we recommend that you do not limit your search to just the law library's collection but take advantage of your access to all of the libraries in the system in order to find the material you need.

SSRN & Google Scholar

Social Science Research Network (SSRN) is devoted to the dissemination of social science research and is composed of a number of specialized research networks in each of the social sciences, including the law.  A researcher can conduct searches from the SSRN search page to find articles of interest.

Google Scholar, while not comprehensive, provides a quick way to get a cross-disciplinary set of articles. It can be especially useful as you start your research and are still refining your search terms.

With Advanced Search you can limit by date or by subject area (such as "Social Sciences, Arts, and Humanities"). For search tips and advice, see Google Scholar Help and the Advance Scholar Search Tips.
