You can search by ISBN in OneSearch Advanced Search by selecting ISBN from the "Any Field" dropdown menu. But it's best to search by title. Different editions of the book might have different ISBNs.
If you can't find the book in OneSearch, you can click the "All CUNY" option at the top of the page to see if any other CUNY library has it. If they do, you can try requesting the book using the Request button. (More info on intra-CUNY borrowing.) If no library at CUNY has the book, try searching for it in public libraries.
We have a collection of books on the upper floor of the Library, in the south wing. In addition to case reporters and code books, we have secondary legal materials including treatises, practice books, manuals and guides on different areas of law. Browsing here can be very helpful. (On the lower level of the library, you will find the books about law that can be borrowed from the library).
In addition there are e-books on law in our Ebrary and our ebook collection from ebscoHOST (formerly named netLibrary) collections, and in other databases (All books regardless of format are listed in the library catalog, OneSearch)
