Hello, Rachel,

Let's see if I'm understanding correctly: You've pulled up encyclopedias in a catalog search and want to know how to locate them? There should be a little "Availability" link under the book title and information; if you click it, it will give you the floor the item is on and the call number.

As far as knowing if it's a good resource or not, click on a promising title and scroll down the item's page to the table of contents. Hopefully there will be a complete list of chapters to see if there is a section specifically on law libraries (or potentially "special" or "private" libraries).

For more in-depth information, we carry the Law Library Journal

Some books: Basics of Law Librarianship:
