NYU Law faculty and students may place interlibrary loan requests for material not owned or available through NYU Law Library or Bobst Library.
Article Finders are indexes and full-text journal databases that you can search by keywords, subjects, author names, dates, etc. Westlaw, LexisAdvance, Bloomberg Law, and HeinOnline have searchable journals and law reviews, but for more PDFs, more journals, including more non-law journals, and more years of the journals, you should also use relevant Article Finders available via JULIUS.
