Researching Conflict and Dispute Resolution at UO Libraries

Finding Books

Books provide in depth treatment of a subject at varying levels of difficulty.  Legal scholarly works are often curated collections of different articles (chapters) written by recognized experts in a field of study.  

To access materials within the UO Libraries and the Northwest region, use LibrarySearch.  Make sure you Sign In, so you can request and access library items.

To find materials only in the UO Library system, narrow your search to UO Libraries:

To broaden your search - If you want books, videos, or other material in the UO Library system and the consortium of 37 colleges and universities in Oregon, Washington, and Idaho: use UO and Summit (Summit materials generally arrive within five days)

If you want to broaden your search even further - Use WorldCat to search beyond the UO Library and the consortium.  These materials are requested through Interlibrary Loan and may come from any library (Books and AV items arrive within an average of 10 days.)  On the Libraries' homepage you'll see:

Requesting items from other libraries

You can request articles, books, and other items from other libraries if they are not available in the UO Libraries.

For articles, submit the citation you need through Interlibrary Loan. We'll find a library that has the publication you need, and the article will come to you as a pdf.

For books and AV materials, you can request items in two ways:

  1. Search "UO + Summit" in LibrarySearch for what you need. Items available in Summit Libraries (academic libraries in the Pacific Northwest) can be requested and arrive in about 5 days.
  2. Search WorldCat (Libraries Worldwide)" for what you need. Items can be requested and arrive in 7-10 days.

If you still can't find the item you need, but you have evidence that it exists (for example, you are looking for a specific title or edition of a book), submit a request using the UO Libraries' Interlibrary Loan form and we'll take care of the rest.
