Throughout the year the Law Librarians purchase new materials – sometimes following requests, and other times to ensure that new editions of established and key texts are available to staff and students. This part of our work has been especially busy this last year as learning and teaching has gone online!
Requests are received from students, staff and colleagues from across the Law School. Some are related to specific courses, but many are to support the research undertaken by staff and students.
We thought we would take this opportunity to let you know about a few of the new items we have recently ordered and received in:
- Routledge Handbook of Critical Criminology (2018)
- Principle and pragmatism in Roman law (2020)
- Commercial Trusts (D’Angelo, 2014)
- High Crimes and Misdemeanors: A History of Impeachment in the Age of Trump (2019)
- Necessary evil: how to fix finance by saving human rights (2018)
- Shareholder Activism and the Law: The Future of Us Corporate Governance (2020)
- Law Enforcement in the Age of Black Lives Matter : Policing Black and Brown Bodies (2018)
- Copy This Book! : What Data Tells Us about Copyright and the Public Good (2021)
- The Internal Market 2. 0 (2020)
- Llm Dissertation : How to Maximise Marks for Your Practice Focused Dissertation. (2018)
- Records of the Kurds: territory, revolt and nationalism, 1831-1979. (2015)
This last item is a 13 volume set comprising of around 9000 pages, making it an incredibly helpful resource on the topic of the history of the Kurdish people. Having access to this material makes Edinburgh one of a select number of universities who give access to their students and staff to this unique resource.
Staff and students can place requests directly using the online forms available on the Library webpages.
If we cannot purchase the item (may be it is an older edition, out of stock, or not available in the online format you want) then we recommend you use the Interlibrary Loan Request Service which allows us to try to source access from other libraries or academic institutions.
If you would like us to consider a subscription, or you want to discuss your request further you can email us in the usual way using firstname.lastname@example.org.
