IALS Global Law Library completes successful series of UK road shows

The Institute of Advanced Legal Studies Global Law Library is very pleased to announce the successful completion of its series of road shows for the current academic year.

During the road show series, librarians from the Institute travelled to universities across the country to talk to law researchers and academics about the national role of the Institute and to highlight the wide range of library resources, collections, expertise and training available to them. The sessions also included demonstrations of the national legal research tools developed by the Institute, which are freely available online and available to legal researchers across the globe.

Over 100 academics, researchers and law librarians from eight universities attended the road shows, with many signing up for a library reader ticket on the day.

The programme included the following universities:

  • Aberystwyth University (with attendees also from Bangor University)
  • The University of Hull
  • The University of Kent
  • The University of Manchester
  • Plymouth University
  • The University of Sheffield
  • Swansea University

The IALS Library team would like to sincerely thank all of the law schools and librarians for their hospitality and assistance in arranging the sessions. If you would like the IALS Global Law Library to come to your law school, please contact Lisa Davies, Access Librarian on 020 7862 5821 or email: lisa.davies@sas.ac.uk
