You are invited to use the reference collections in the various law libraries in the University Library system for your literature search.
High-quality electronic media can make the work of conducting a literature search a great deal easier. The University Library can offer you a wide range of databases, electronic journals and e-books relating to the study of law.
In addition to details of subject-related databases the Datenbank-Infosystem (Database Information System) DBIS also lists the titles of relevant reference works, dictionaries and full-text databases. You are naturally also free to access the databases of all the other disciplines.
You will usually be able to access the University Library's electronic media wherever you may be, provided you first go through the authentication procedure. However, licensing restrictions may block external access to some databases. Access to the following law databases is only possible from within the LMU campus network:

Research training courses and introductions to the use of law-related databases are provided by the Rechtsinformatikzentrum (Centre for Computer Technology in Law - RIZ). You will also find an introduction to jurisprudential research techniques as a podcast on the RIZ website.
If you have any questions the subject specialist for law will be glad to help you. You will find his or her contact details in the service column on the right-hand side of this web page.
