The collection also includes other legal primary sources, such as the United States Code Annotated, Code of Federal Regulations, Federal Register, and European Union laws and regulations. It also contains many secondary sources, including over 800 law reviews and journals, the legal encyclopedia American Jurisprudence, and the analytical series American Law Reports.

News: The collection contains the full text of hundreds of newspapers, newswires, newsletters, broadcast transcripts, magazines, and trade journals. Both U.S. and international publications are included.
