The Library subscribes to a number of print journals in the area of Law. Journals are often a source of the most current information on a topic and are arranged in subject order like books using Dewey shelf numbers:
E.g. Irish Law Times shelved at 344.17
European Law Review shelved at 341.2422
The current year’s journals are located in Stack 20 on the ground floor beside the Reference collection. The most recent issue is shelved facing outwards and back issues are stored under the angled display shelf.
Back issues of Law journals are located in the Law Reference section (Stacks 17-19) on the ground floor.
Journals may not be borrowed but articles maybe photocopied (subject to Copyright and Related Rights Act, 2000).
Some print journals allow online access as part of the subscription. The link for online access is incorporated into the library catalogue record for the particular journal title.
