A guide to the library resources for the graduate programmes at Dalhousie Law School.

Locating Books - Worldcat

Worldcat is the meta-search tool that searches our Novanet Library Catalogue, other academic libraries' catalogue, as well as many of Dalhousie databases (though not many law sources). Use this tool as a good general search for textbooks anywhere.
