Human Rights Protection

A concise guide to researching the international protection of human rights


Tarlton Law Library holds a major collection of materials on the international legal protection of human rights. Two areas of the law library where human rights materials are concentrated are:

  • JC571 - JC599
  • K3230 - K3285

However, materials on international human rights protection will be found in various areas of the law library, as well as on the World Wide Web. Therefore, it is essential to use the online catalog, TALLONS, as well as the methods and information covered in this Guide in order to do thorough research.

"Human rights" is a working Library of Congress subject heading on TALLONS. A Keyword search on TALLONS using the phrase "human rights" returns over 13,000 results. These can be sorted by date to display the most recent titles first.
