Law Research Guides: Subject Guide To Treatises and Looseleaf Services

Sources are indicated as they were in April 2017. Lexis, Bloomberg Law, and Westlaw frequently add and delete sources, so these designations are not definitive. The sources are identified by location: LL = print in the UM Law Library; L = Lexis Advance; W = Westlaw; B = Bloomberg Law; and BNA = publications available through the Law Library's subscription database page or from Bloomberg Law.

To determine if Lexis provides access to a certain source, use Lexis' Browse function or just try typing the name of the source in the main search box. To determine if Westlaw provides access to a source, try typing the name of the source in the main search box. To determine if Bloomberg Law provides access to a source, try clicking “Books & Treatises” from the home page, and then typing in the name of the source in quotation marks.
