Law - Interdisciplinary and News Indexes & Databases

Selective listing of interdisciplinary and news resources.
Note: Most of the indexes and databases are limited to UBC students, faculty, staff and on-site Library users (other restrictions may apply).


In addition to legal databases and indexes, you may be researching a topic that requires you to go further afield. Whether you are researching a topic that is interdisciplinary in nature, looking for a news story, or need statistics to back up an argument, there are non-legal databases and resources that can help.

To find a complete listing of indexes & databases pertaining to a particular subject area, go to the homepage of the relevant subject library. From any UBC Library webpage (, click on Hours & Locations from the top menu choices, select the relevant library, and click on the library’s web address.

This guide includes a selective listing of interdisciplinary and news resources.
