I do occasionally venture out of the virtual law world and into other virtual spaces. If I have to do research, I prowl the Axinn Library and look at their Research Databases. I almost always start my non-legal hunting in Academic Search Premier - a general interest database with references to non-legal articles (including a lot with full text pdfs) in just about all areas. Then, I'll take a look at the Subject Listing and choose my interest du jour.
If I do not see a link to the full text, then I will definitely try Journal Finder - a resource to help me find which database carries my journal of interest.
