The Loyola Law Library and the Loyola Libraries system subscribe to a number of commercial databases that offer coverage related to foreign constitutions. 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.
General and financial newspapers may be extremely helpful when researching local constitutional developments. 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.
Most of the law-related databases listed below are available through the Law Library's website via the "Databases A-Z List."
Non-law databases are available through the Loyola University Libraries' website. See the LUC Libraries page for a full list of non-law databases, organized by topic. The guide for Political Science may be particularly useful for legal-related topics.
The Index to Foreign Legal Periodicals (IFLP) indexes foreign (including some non-English language) law reviews and journals. The Index is available in print in the 3rd Floor Reference Section at K33 .I5, as well as online through HeinOnline.
