Subject Headings are how librarian catalog books in the collection.  They are subject based and you will find books on similar topics right next to each other.  Click on the below subject headings to see what Ohio University Libraries has in our collection.  Keep in mind that OU does not have a law library and our collection will not be as robust as a true law library.  Just search these subject headings in OhioLINK to search in law libraries from around Ohio. After clicking on a link, look on the right-hand side for "Search OhioLINK".
