This isn’t exactly the view from my desk, but it’s the new view for lots of our students. Our newly refurbished area in the main library houses our High Demand collection – which you can see here behind the glass walls. I’m still waiting for Tom Cruise to drop out of the ceiling….
I’m posting this on the train so please excuse any typos 🙂
Regulation 216/2013 of 7 March 2013 states that only the Official Journal produced electronically will have authentic and full legal status. The OJ is accessible via Eur-Lex.
Many academic libraries have already cancelled their print subscriptions to the OJ series, due to budget reductions, space limitations and the general shift towards electronic access. We, at the University of Glasgow Library, hadn’t taken this step because the print was the only version with full legal effect. However, this legislation now gives us the green light to cancel.
You can now access the catalogue of the Court of Justice via their Library website. The catalogue is updated daily and is currently the most complete source of bibliographic information relating to EU law.
Are you unsure about the formation of the EU and its institutions? Are you confused about the Treaties and enlargement process? Would you like a clear explanation of the background, key dates and some useful comparative stats? If so, see this new publication from the House of Lords “The European Union Today” LLN 2012/003
The Scottish Government has released the remaining papers which it can publish surrounding the decision to release the prisoner early on compassionate grounds.
Also available today is the report of the review by the UK Cabinet Secretary, Sir Gus O’Donnell.
We will be changing the layout of the SWOP website in the future and would like to know what you find most useful about it? Do you use the links to monthly lists? Are you interested in forthcoming events? Is there anything that you would like to see included which isn’t at the moment?
