Catalog information


SearchWorks (formerly known as Socrates), Stanford's library catalog, is your gateway to the holdings of the Stanford University Libraries. The catalog allows you to keyword search and browse through electronic and print resources owned by the Law Library as well as the numerous other libraries on campus.


Available through SearchWorks, the e-journals list allows you to browse by journal title or search by keyword to determine where and how to access electronic versions of your favorite journals.


The Stanford community enjoys access to a wide variety of databases. These databases include content such as historical newspaper archives (New York Times, Wall Street Journal, Los Angeles Times), current corporate news (Business Source Complete) and much, much more.
