How do I find legal materials in the online catalog?

Researchers may request items from the Law Library’s collection for delivery to the Law Library Reading Room (Madison Building, Room LM-242) for use during an onsite visit. To learn useful tips on using the catalog and requesting different types of items from the legal collections, please watch the video tutorial “Searching the Library of Congress Catalog for Legal Materials.” In this 10-minute video, you will learn how to search the catalog; limit the search to only those materials in the Law Library’s collection; and identify where the relevant materials are located.

We hope you find this video tutorial helpful. As always, if you encounter any issues while navigating the catalog or other Library of Congress resources, please contact us through Ask A Librarian.
