EBSCO: Index to Legal Periodicals and Books: Using the System

Part Three in a Four Part Series.

The EBSCOhost Index of Legal Periodicals and Books (ILP) provides a comprehensive way to find sources on important legal topics. This blawg will show the different tools available once a search term has been entered.

On the home page, I placed “American Indian Law” in the search box and limited the sources to periodicals. The ILP search results provided a lot of potential sources.

On the left side of the page, there was a box showing the current search and also a way to limit the sources further. Each result also showed if there was a link the full PDF, a way to find it, or a way to request the source.

Once a source is selected, ILP provides many useful tools. There is an abstract, subject words, and an easy access way to download the PDF.

If ILP has the PDF, there is a myriad of tools to use within the PDF itself. For example, there is a tool to manage the table of contents and a way to print, email, or save the source.

Access to EBSCOhost: Index to Legal Periodicals and Books database is available through the Texas Tech Law Library website under the Electronic Databases tab.
