New Law Databases A – Z List

The appearance of the Law Library Databases list has changed but the list is still the same. https://researchguides.library.yorku.ca/az.php?s=127175
The A – Z list is an alphabetical listing of all legal electronic resources. The new look gives you direct access to information about content, description and scope of each resource as you scroll down the list. Another feature is the distinct symbol that tells you when a resource is Open Access and New.
The list also gives you a search option which links to other electronic resources available in the York University Libraries.
Please contact a Reference Librarian if you need any assistance.
