Seminar Research at WVU College of Law


The WVU library catalog and interlibrary loan services are available to help access books, interdisciplinary articles, and other materials useful for seminar research. Books and articles available at the WVU Law Library can be accessed through WorldCat, the library catalog. If the resource is not available at the WVU Law Library, the WorldCat record will indicate availability at other WVU Libraries (Book Express+) or through global lending (ILLiad). Through an interlibrary loan request, the resource can be emailed or shipped to the WVU Law Library.
