Law

What are eResources?

  eResources are electronic information resources which can be accessed online and searched by topic, so you can quickly and easily find relevant information. 

Legal eResources such as Westlaw and LexisLibrary provide access to UK and EU case law and legislation, scholarly journal articles, encyclopedias, dictionaries, international materials and much more. 

Used by all major law firms, they are constantly updated and our Solent Library subscription therefore allows you access to the latest high-quality legal information 24/7.
