Public Policy Subject Guide — Legal Research

Guide to UConn Library-licensed online and print resources related to various fields of public policy including Public Administration, Survey Research, and Nonprofit Leadership.






The UConn Library, in conjunction with the UConn Law Library, offers access to a number of legal databases; Nexis Uni (an academic version of the Lexis-Nexis database) provides full-text access to law reviews, and state and federal regulations, statutes, and cases. Legislative Insight by ProQuest provides legislative histories for select federal legislation (for more information on conducting a legislative history, see my Federal Legislative History and Analysis guide). Hein Online is terrific for access to scanned volumes of Congressional Record and many other legal reference materials.
