Finding Bloomberg BNA Publications at the O'Quinn Law Library

Did you know that the law library subscribes to over 100 Bloomberg BNA publications? From topics ranging from health care to intellectual property, environmental law, and tax, Bloomberg BNA's publications provide current law and expert analysis. They can serve as a tremendous resource for lawyers and law students seeking to interpret and understand legal principles in their practice areas. If you've ever taken a glance at our list of Bloomberg BNA databases by topic  or the A to Z list on our website, you will notice that for some areas of law, there are numerous resources available.

For example, there are 14 publications related to healthcare law. This includes titles like Health Law Reporter, Health Care Daily Report, and Health Insurance Report. You may wonder how to choose the correct publication for researching your topic. Why not try searching them all (or a few) at once? Now, when you enter any of our Bloomberg BNA publications you will see a link in the upper right-hand corner of the page called "My BNA." When you click on the link, you are taken to a search screen that allows you to choose some or all of the publications in a given subject area to search at once. Then, once you receive your results, you can see the results by type (analysis, profiles, cases, etc.), and see what publication your results came from. This may not make understanding the Affordable Care Act much easier, but it can definitely help you research it more efficiently!
