Welcome to the Law Subject Guide - giving you information on library resources and services.
DiscoverEd is one way to find resources such as books and journal articles.
Your University Login (EASE) gives you access to DiscoverEd where you can explore online and physical resources, as well as special collections.
Need help searching DiscoverEd? The Using the Library page has help and advice.
The recently refurbished Law Library is located in Old College alongside the Edinburgh Law School.
Details of opening hours, location and contacts for the Law Library can be found on the Law Library webpages.
The Law Library leaflet also has useful information.
There is also a self-guided tour for new students available to download or pick up at the Helpdesk.
Resource Lists are online reading lists that can signpost you to key reading materials. Some of your courses may have a Resource List embedded in the Virtual Learning Environment (VLE) but you can also access them directly.
Full details are available on the Resource Lists: Information for Students webpage.
Subject Guides from other disciplines can be a useful source of ideas and information. Some focus on a topic such as newspapers as well as others that are more subject specific e.g. Business, Medicine economics etc. A full list of subject guides is available on the university website.
The Library provides access to many e-resources, but we also provide lots of other services and support for students on online learning programmes.
