Searching for Books and Journals

To locate additional books on the UCC, search the Duke Libraries Catalog. When searching by subject, use search terms generated from the relevant Article‘s title instead of more general terms. For example, enter “bulk sales”, “secured transactions” or “negotiable instruments” as subject keywords in the catalog to search for these topics.

Some treatises are also available in LexisNexis and Westlaw In LexisNexis, choose “Area of Law - By Topic,” then “Commercial Law (UCC),” then browse the “Search Analysis, Law Reviews & Journals” section. In Westlaw, begin at the “Directory” screen. Choose “Topical Practice Areas,” followed by “Commercial Law & Contracts,” then “Uniform Commercial Code”。 In WestlawNext, the database “Commercial Law Secondary Sources” will direct you to various UCC-related treatises and law journals.

In addition to the specific journals mentioned above, general law review journals publish articles on various UCC issues. To search for relevant UCC articles use a database, such as LegalTrac that indexes thousands of articles. You can also search the Duke Libraries Catalog using the “All” feature that will search articles. Westlaw offers a specialized database of legal periodicals that focuses solely on commercial law (CML-TP)
