Researching the Law of the Spanish Autonomous Communities: Databases

About

The Loyola Law Library and the Loyola Libraries system subscribe to a number of commercial databases that offer coverage of legal developments in Spain.  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. 

Basque Database

The Basque Database, created by the Jon Bilbao Basque Library at the University of Nevada in Reno, is a multi-disciplinary index to materials about the Basque Country. Coverage starts in 1994.

SSRN

SSRN is an electronic repository for international social sciences scholarship that includes the Legal Scholarship Network (LSN).  Thousands of downloadable abstracts, working papers, and published papers are available without charge.  Materials may be dowloaded anonymously or with an individual login/password (free).

Dissertations & Theses

Often overlooked by academic legal researchers, dissertations and theses contain exhaustive research and extensive bibliographies.  The Proquest Dissertations & Theses database currently includes citations to over two million dissertations and theses from 1861 forward, and full-text access to over one million of these citations. The database's coverage is global, with numerous law-related papers available to download in PDF format.  Searches may be conducted in various fields, such as title, author, citation and abstract, and degree awarded.
