Concord’s library features a carefully constructed database of links and subscription services. It provides online access to all research materials students will need to complete their assignments and fulfill the curriculum.
Concord Library Links is where professors insert URLs specific to courses. This area also contains collections--such as “the health law section” and the “first-year” section, designed for new students. A continuous review of the website links ensures that they are up-to-date and relevant. Faculty and student contributions, questions, and suggestions are directed to the librarians via email.
Westlaw, one of the nation’s leading online legal research services, contains thousands of databases of primary law at both the federal and state levels, as well as secondary sources.
HeinOnline provides access to law reviews, journals, treatisies, and an historical record of the Federal Register.
Versuslaw offers a collection of federal, state, tribal, and foreign court opinions.
Kaplan Online Library is a collection of electronic resources, including Academic Search Premier, Business Search Premier, newspapers, and many more resources.
