UNC Libraries Website

The UNC Libraries website provides several unique research tools that bring together content from many of the subscription databases available to the UNC Community. These research tools are particularly useful for UNC Law faculty and students conducting interdisciplinary research or research into academic disciplines other than law. This page provides information about a few of these research tools. For more information and tools, please explore the UNC Libraries website.

E-Research by Discipline

E-Research by Discipline organizes databases, journals, and other materials by discipline. This UNC Libraries research tool is particularly useful for law students conducting interdisciplinary research, as the disciplinary pages each begin with a list of “Recommended Databases” that contain the most-used research databases. The individual disciplinary pages also provide links to relevant research guides and contact information for the subject specialist librarian at various UNC Libraries.


Articles+ is a unique UNC Libraries research tool that allows users to search scholarly journal articles, news articles, eBook content, and dissertations from across UNC Libraries’ various subscription databases. Articles+ also provides users with advanced search and filtering options to narrow results by discipline, subject, content type, and publication date.


The E-Journals page of the UNC Libraries’ website provides a complete listing of journal titles available to the UNC Community. Users can search for specific journal titles or view a list of journal titles organized by subject matter. For each journal title, the E-journals page provides available coverage dates and links to the databases providing online access.
