The Faculty of Law Library gives access to a huge digital and print collection.
The library of the Faculty of Law has large print collection. To search the print collections, use the University Libraries catalogue, LUBcat. You can search nationally among the books available at higher education institutions in Sweden in the national library catalogue LIBRIS.
To search for online books, articles or other documents available online, you can look in several databases. The Faculty of Law Library has collected law databases in a list.
LUBsearch provides common access to many of Lund University Libraries’ electronic resources, i.e. databases, journals and e-books.
As a student or an employee of Lund University, you can use your student account or LUCAT ID to access licensed databases from home.

Do you have a hard time finding what you are looking for?
To get the most out of a database it can be helpful to use truncation, phrase search, and Boolean operators.
Truncation means that your search includes all possible endings of the root of a word. Some databases do this automatically, but many use a symbol to truncate a word. The asterisk * symbol is the most commonly used command for truncation.
Example: Build* includes Building, Builder, Builders
Phrase search " "
Phrase search means that an exact sequence of words is used.
Example: ”personal integrity” or ”common law”
Booleon operators means that you tell the search engine how to use your search terms, with the words AND, OR, or NOT, often in all caps.
AND – used when you are interested in two or more terms combined.
OR – used when you want to broaden your search and include results with only one of your search terms.
NOT – used when you want to exclude a search term from your results.
