Law: Using the Library

How do I find my recommended reading?

Use Reading Lists @ Liverpool to search for a module code or a lecturer's name to find your reading list. Not all lists have been added yet, but more are being added all the time.

Where do I find my books?

The Law Collection

The Law Collection is housed in the Abercromby Wing of the Sydney Jones Library, which is the wing where the Library entrance is located.

Find the location of a specific book using the library catalogue. If the catalogue tells you a book is in the Sydney Jones Library Law Collection, make a note of the class number and go to the second floor in the Abercromby Wing. The ends of the shelves are labelled, so that you can see where the books with specific class numbers are located.


The Main Collection

Sometimes you will need to use non-law books, or books located outside of the Law Collection.

If the Library Catalogue tells you that a book is located in the Sydney Jones Library, this is referring to the main collection. Make a note of the class number and go over to the Grove Wing of the Sydney Jones Library.

You may find other books you want are in the Harold Cohen Library, or the reference section of the Sydney Jones Library (located in the link between the two wings) - the Library Catalogue will clearly tell you the location.

For more guidance, see, How do I locate books and journals in the Library?  If you have any problems finding the books that you need, speak to a member of library staff.
