You can search for specific titles in LOLA, the library catalog. But this can be a little cumbersome --for example, if you just want to see all of the library's study aids on torts that are available. 

All of the current editions of study aids are in shelving behind the Reference Desk and are arranged by subject. These materials cannot be taken from the library. You can check the title in the library catalog to see if there is an earlier edition available in Biddle's open stacks or Lewis (ask at Circulation) that you can check out.
