The Loyola Law Library and the Loyola Libraries system subscribe to a number of commercial databases that offer coverage of international and foreign topics. These databases are listed below, and at right. Loyola users in Rome will need to submit their LUC user IDs and passwords to gain access to these resources.
PowerNotes is a productivity tool that allows you to gather, organize, and track legal research easily and efficiently. With PowerNotes, you can capture excerpts from any online resource, including Lexis and Westlaw, and then save, highlight, or annotate this content. You can also use PowerNotes to build and edit an outline as you research.
Access to PowerNotes is restricted to the Law School community. To get started using PowerNotes, please install the Google Chrome extension or the Firefox extension and then register for an account using your Loyola Law School email and Loyola's promo code, which you can obtain from Joe Mitzenmacher, Reference and Electronic Services Librarian (firstname.lastname@example.org).
Two short videos serve as basic introductions to setting up and using PowerNotes for general research projects and for legal research projects:
