IALS13/09:Union Lists and Guides to the Location of Sources, 1949-1978

Extent and form : 12 items

Scope and Contents: one of the primary objectives for the Institute of Advanced Legal Studies, as outlined in the Lord Chancellor’s Committee 1934 was the “making the contents of other law libraries as well as its own known and available to “approved readers.” (IALS 13/9/1).  The Union Lists were the primary means of achieving this aim.  Commencing with the Union List of Legal Periodicals: A Location Guide to Holdings of Legal Periodicals in Libraries in the United Kingdom, published in 1949, these publications went on to encompass Commonwealth and South African, United States, Air and Space, and Western European Law Literature.  In addition, in 1974 and 1975 lists were compiled of holdings in London Libraries. 

Access: open

Copies: copies of some of these publications are held in the IALS Library.  Please refer to the Library catalogue.
