Columbo: the Law Library Catalog


The primary law library catalog, affectionately called Columbo, functions like a search engine. You enter search terms in a single box and then filter your results using a variety of categories. Columbo also includes journal articles from HeinOnline in its search results. Enter to access Columbo on your smart phone.

Classic Columbo

Classic Columbo enables you to search by author, title, subject, or call number. Classic Columbo also contains past exams, class recordings, interlibrary loan request forms, and course reserve lists.


Journal Finder

The Journal Finder provides a comprehensive listing of the electronic journals available by subscription from the law library. Included in these listings are select databases from CUA University Libraries (such as JSTOR).

CUA University Libraries also has a journal finder: This journal finder does not include most law library databases.
