Catalogues

There are several library catalogues that may be useful in your research.

SOLO

SOLO is the library catalogue covering the majority of the Library collections of the University of Oxford including the Bodleian Libraries and most College and other libraries affiliated to the University.
Its search engine, SOLO, allows you to search across a number of different sources, currently Oxford's collections of books and journals (both printed and electronic), ORA (Oxford University Research Archive), the Bodleian Library Allegro Chinese and Allegro Japanese catalogues and title links to the 1,000+ databases on OxLIP+. 

The classification scheme used in the Bodleian Law Library is explained on the classification page.

There is a general guide to using SOLO available online.
Alternatively, see our SOLO for lawyers podcast for help with searching.

For example: full text databases including treaties, legislation, case law, official papers, journal articles, commentary and more; indexing services (which will help you find journal articles by subject); and statistics and reference works.
You can also search Oxford e-journals within OxLip+ by clicking on the eJournals tab, for more information about searching for eJournals then see our Online Journals page.
