Library staff provide reference assistance at the main reference desk on level one. Faculty members may telephone the reference desk (330077) with general queries or matters relating to United Kingdom law. References to foreign, comparative or international law may be directed to Lesley Dingle.
Library staff also provide instruction in the use of "Newton", the online university-wide catalogue system.
Faculty members can arrange for individual instruction in the use of any of the subscription or publicly available databases. To request this service where it relates to United Kingdom law, contact David Wills and for international, foreign or comparative law, contact Lesley Dingle.
Faculty members may request the reference librarians to arrange for individual or group Library tours for themselves, their visitors or their classes. These can be of a general nature or tailored for a specific area of interest. Please contact David Wills in this regard.
