Fulltext Sources Online

As all law students discover, online legal research involves much more than using Lexis and Westlaw. When the article or information you need is available online, but only in a specialized news or non-legal database, or on a journal publisher’s Web site, Fulltext Sources Online is a great reference source to know about. Updated every six months, this 2-volume directory lists over 32,000 journals, newspapers, newsletters, newswires and TV and radio transcripts that are accessible online in full text in 27 major databases and aggregator products (including ProQuest, Factiva, HeinOnline, InfoTrac, Lexis, Westlaw and others available to Hofstra law students). Fulltext Sources Online tells you which databases include the title you need, the coverage dates for each database, and the publisher’s Web site. This valuable resource is found on shelves immediately behind the Reference Desk (call number Z6941 .F85).
