Genetics & the Law

A research guide for use by students in Prof. Lombardo's Genetics & the Law seminar.

Introduction

This guide introduces databases and research strategies that can be used to locate articles on genetics and the law.

Locating a Book or Article in the GSU Libraries

If you have a citation to a book or article, but need to find the full text, follow these steps:

  1. Go to the library's catalog GIL-Find.
  2. In GIL-Find, run a search for the name of the book or of the journal containing the article.
  3. Browse through the search results to see if we have it in print or online.
  4. If we have online access, click on the "View Online" link.
  5. If you are looking for an article in a journal, choose a database that has the correct date range.
  6. You will then be taken to a page where you can browse or search within the publication in the particular database.

Locating Material in Other Libraries

If you can't locate the item that you need at the University Library or the Law Library, we may need to get it from another library. First, check WorldCat to determine if the item exists and if it is held by any libraries. WorldCat should also tell you if the item is held by GSU.

Also, be sure to check with a reference librarian to see if we can locate the item without having to ask another library. If we cannot locate the item, please place an interlibrary loan request for the item.
