The Harvard Law School Library is pleased to announce that Hein Online's Law Journal Library is now available to all Harvard alums via the Harvard Key system.
The Harvard Library recently launched a beta program offering select electronic resources to alumni. These resources are available with a HarvardKey account.
In addition to HeinOnline, other available databases include JStor, ABI/Inform, AMA Journals and Project Muse. More titles and databases will be added over time, so check back periodically for updates.
HeinOnline's Law Journal Library contains more than 1,800 law and law-related periodicals.
On-site, you will be able to use to most of the databases that are available to the Harvard Law School community. We also have a Westlaw terminal and a Bloomberg terminal in the reference room on the 4th floor of the Library.
Use Google Scholar and Google Books to search for resources. Begin your search below.
Find It at Harvard Links will identify content we own. On campus, you will have full-database access.
These resources can be a great way to get started with your research when you don't have access to paid databases or if you want to get an overview of a topic before getting started with potentially expensive searches.
This guide links to several selected free online for state and federal primary law, treaties, foreign & international law, legal secondary sources and data sources.
In addition to Bloomberg, LexisNexis, and Westlaw, there are several other legal databases and resources that you can use in your research. This guide explores the content, features and subscriptions of several including Casemaker, Casetext, Fastcase, LoisLaw, PLC, National Law Library, Ravel and VersusLaw.
Did you use a citation management tool like Zotero, EndNote, RefWorks or Mendeley to manage your research? You may be able to keep or transfer your citations for use after graduation.
