Library Workshops and Drop-ins

The library’s programme of workshops and drop-in sessions are now back for the start of the academic year!

If you need some help with literature searching, Harvard referencing or using RefWorks you can sign up to one of our classes led by the library’s Academic Support team.

If you can’t make it to any of the classes, you can come along to one of the available drop-in sessions – no need for an appointment, just pop in!

All workshops and drop-ins are held in IT lab 321 in the GSS Learning Centre. You can check the timetable and sign up for classes here:

We hope to see you soon!

Westlaw access problems

We are sorry to report that there are currently problems accessing all content on Westlaw e.g. cases, legislation, journal articles, eBooks etc.

When trying to open any full text you get the following error message:




The company are aware of the problem and are working to resolve it.

We apologise for the inconvenience this is causing and will update when we know more.

Westlaw – problems with eBook access

We are sorry to report that there are currently problems with access to eBooks on Westlaw.

Our subscription to Westlaw gives access to approx. 65 eBooks as well as the cases, legislation etc. However a new platform was launched recently and we are currently able to access nearly 300 titles on this new site.

The company is working to resolve this problem and we will update once we get more details.

Please note that once the problem is fixed we will lose access to all the titles that are not part of our subscription.
