Your subject-specific guide to using library resources.
We are teaching, researching and learning in extraordinary times. Newcastle University Library has arranged for access to OUP Law Trove to directly support the modules offered on the LLB and LLM courses taught in Newcastle Law School. This will now be available through 2020/21.
If you want to know more about OUP Law Trove then please read the post on our Subject Support Blog. If you have any further questions, you can contact Library Help for support.
Library Search enables you to search across all print and eBook collections. However, if you want to search/browse eBooks from a particular supplier or collection, you can find links to subject specific eBook collections below.
The Law Library has a collection of novels, short stories, graphic novels, films, plays and poetry that all relate to law. You will find the Law in Literature collection in the Reference Room in the Law Library.
There will be times when the book that you want is not on the shelf, either because it has been borrowed by someone else, or because we do not have it in the library collection. If all copies of the book are out on loan, make a reservation via Library Search. We'll email you when the book becomes available. If the book is returned on time, it will be with you within 7 days.
If you are a student you can ask the Library to purchase a book by Recommending a book not held by the Library. Complete the form and the book will be reserved for you and added to the Library collection for others to use. This will be especially useful when doing your dissertation or research project.
If you are a member of University staff, and you would like to recommend a book for purchase, then please complete a Suggest a Book form. If we are unable to purchase a copy of the book, you will be given the option to request an Inter Library Loan and we'll borrow the book for you from the British Library.
