Resources to explore...

The University Library has invested in a great range of online resources for 2017-18.

Following resource trials and consultation with students and staff we now have access to new digitised archives and e-book collections. These include the Selden Society and the History of Early English Law, Bloomsbury/Hart e-books, Springer Law and Springer Criminology e-books.

Access them via Library Search or the relevant Subject Guide.

The University Library has purchased several new collections from Bloomsbury, including Family and Social Law, Labour and Discrimination Law, Legal Philosophy, Medical Law and Ethics, and Philosophy 2016 & 2017. Each book title is individually catalogued and listed on Library Search or you can browse the titles in each collection here.

The University Library has a hard copy collection of the Lloyd's Law Reports, shelved in the Law Library's Specialist Law Reports room. The collection covers from 1919-2016 with 2017 arriving shortly.

Available via Kluwer Arbitration, titles can also be located and accessed via Library Search. Kluwer Arbitration has updated its interface and you can discover its new features on their new content help page (YouTube videos included).
