Free Access due to the Coronavirus (Covid-19) Pandemic

Due to the coronavirus (Covid-19) pandemic, legal publishers are providing additional free access to the legal community. These resources will be on free access for a certain period of time to support education and research. We will keep you posted should these be extended or shut down.

This does not affect the existing digital reference collections and databases for which the Library has a paid subscription. These can be consulted by our patrons as normal. Please, do not forget to login with your PPL User account to get access.

You can also subscribe to our Twitter List Legal Publishing. This feature allows you to follow news from legal publishers. Viewing a List timeline will show you a stream of Tweets from only the accounts on that List. We have selected these accounts carefully in order to guarantee good quality. Please, subscribe to this List by clicking first on 'Lists' and then on 'Subscribe'
