Searching for journal articles
John Papadopoulos, a new contributor to Slaw.ca recently wrote a great reminder about the ability to find Canadian Law Journals on Commercial Databases. In speaking about the unique collections that each of the commercial publishers offer and the dearth of crossover, John reminds us:
if you are doing journal research and want to know what has been written on a specific topic use an index - full-text searching is (still) not enough.In addition to journal indexes, I want to remind you of the Custom Google search that Ted Tjaden created. By visiting this search site, you can search Canadian law firm websites, blogs & journals.
Remember to look everywhere - or delegate to the library staff to search for you.
