Newcastle Law School

The Law Library

Our Law Library is located within Newcastle Law School. As a division of the University Library, it specialises in supporting those engaged in researching and learning law, offering access to print and online resources with the support of dedicated library staff.

Law students are expected to make full use of this library and its resources, alongside the facilities available in the University Library, and collections available from the Research Reserve,

With a variety of study spaces and IT facilities available, the University Library presents a versatile approach to supporting silent, quiet and collaborative study. The library also offers laptop and headphone loans, in addition to an online Reading List service giving access to essential, recommended and background reading to support each module studied in Newcastle Law School.

The Law Library is open 7 days a week throughout term-time. Student Aides are recruited from the Law School each year to undertake library duties during each evening and weekend, and the library also provides support through our online 24/7 Library Help service.

Library Search is Newcastle University’s library catalogue. It is a discovery tool which can be used to locate books, eBooks, journal articles and many other resources using a single search.

The Library’s subject guides bring together tailored subject-specific information and resources. As the Library subscribes to over 300 specialist subject databases, 26,000 eJournals and has access to over six million eBooks, the subject guides are the best place to start exploring your specific discipline. 

Our University Library has received the Customer Service Excellence Award for the quality of its services. After winning five Charter Mark awards, the Library has now achieved the Government’s service standard to confirm its reputation as one of the best in the country.
