As 2021 draws to a close, we realise this has been another unusual term for staff and students at the University. While the Law Library is still open until 4.50pm tomorrow (Thursday 23rd December), we will then close our doors until Wednesday 5th January 2022. If you are studying or conducting research over the winter break you will find our online resources remain accessible via the usual channels, but should you run into difficulties we will not be able to respond to any messages until we return in January.
On behalf of the team at the Law Library Helpdesk and the Academic Support Librarians we wish you all a restful and restorative break, and hope for your health and happiness during your time away from the University. We look forward to welcoming you back (whether in-person or remotely) in January.
Following on from our last post about Finding Material for your Research and Study, we’ve just recorded a new video to introduce some of the databases we subscribe to for international law. If this is an area that is relevant to your study, grab a cup of tea and spend eight and a half minutes finding out more about how library subscription services can support your work.
Is there an area of legal research you’d like to know more about, or would like to find resources for? Email us on firstname.lastname@example.org to discuss, or book a one-to-one appointment with us via the MyEd booking system; search for “Literature search clinic” and select the Law specific event, or search for “Law” and select provider group “IS Library and University Collections” to find all our Law related training.
It is nearing the end of semester and the pressure to complete dissertations and study for exams is on. The Law Subject Guide is one place where you can find quick links to useful resources.
As well as linking to the databases we also have a section on where to find the key eBooks and Law Reports. This provides a helpful at-a-glance guide to where to find particular reports or statutes, and we’ve also added a document which shows which books are available via each of our databases.
TIP: When you download the PDF, open the document use the CTRL+F shortcut on your keyboard to search for the name of the book you’re looking for to see which database has it!
