Law Collection: new acquisitions and subscriptions
Just because the Library has been open with reduced opening hours, and we have been partly working remotely, it doesn’t mean that we did not continue to develop our collections. Over the course of last December new resources continued to be selected and ordered for our academic community.
Moved by the constant need of keeping our users up to date with the new regulations and studies in the field, our acquisition process for the law collection allows our researchers to stay informed and academically competitive, with the final intent of developing a multilingual collection in line with the international profile of our Institution.
Law eBook Collections
To this end, the Acquisitions and eResources Teams are delighted to announce the purchase of five Law eBook collections:
- Brill International Law Collection 2020
- Cairn European and International Law
- Cairn Legal Systems and Theory
- Routledge Handbooks
- Routledge Research on EU LAW
A new subscriptions has also been added to the already rich offer of electronic resources for lawyers, namely: Oxford Scholarly Authorities on International law (OSAIL). Part of the Oxford Public International Law online platform, OSAIL contains over 180 full-text online editions of reference works and treatises published by Oxford University Press, including Oppenheim, and the Oxford Commentaries on International Law. OSAIL complements the other OUP law databases, to which the Library already subscribes to, providing an authoritative tool in one of the main subject areas of the EUI Law Department.
Last but not least, the Library has subscribed to two recently released textbook collections, granting electronic access to some of the most used (and with the highest number of holds!) titles in our collection, until now only available in print format:
- Oxford Law Trove: a selection of 28 core textbooks on European Union Law and Public International Law, including the latest editions of EU Law: Text, Cases and Materials by Paul Craig and Gráinne de Búrca, and of International Law by Malcolm Evans.
- Higher Education from Cambridge University Press: over 100 core textbooks across all law subject areas, including European Environmental Law by Suzanne Kingston, Veerle Heyvaert, and Aleksandra Čavoški, and International Human Rights Law: Cases, Materials, Commentary by Olivier De Schutter.
