“IFLP is a terrific resource. We use it to find articles by specific authors, find articles in specific languages or concerning a certain country. I really like the You may want to look at these subjects as well feature. We think it’s a very helpful search tool for the Foreign Legal Periodicals.
Hein’s Law Journal Library is so large that it’s important to have many different methods to search it, as with a simple search what you are really looking for can be buried under the many results. I particularly like the subject search in IFLP because it suggests different subgroups and tells you what types of materials will be found there in different languages.”
