The Loyola Law Library and the Loyola Libraries system subscribe to a number of commercial databases that offer coverage related to art and cultural property law. These databases are listed below, and at right.  Loyola users will need to submit their user IDs and passwords to gain access to these resources from off campus. 

Newspapers

General and financial newspapers may be extremely helpful when researching developments in the areas of art law and cultural property.  Westlaw and LexisNexis both have good coverage of U.S., international, and foreign newspapers.  See also the subscription Access World News and Factiva databases for full-text access to newspapers and trade publications. English-language newspapers published abroad can also be helpful;  see e.g., Latin American Herald Tribune.
