PLR Assessment: Help from Library Staff

Good luck to LPC students starting your PLR!

Please note that as the PLR has to be your own work, library staff are restricted in the help they can give you during the PLR assessment period.  We cannot give you advice on how to carry out your specific research  (research strategies, choice of search terms, etc). However, we can still offer general advice on the following:

a)    where to find books and how to access databases

b)    sources of further guidance on how to use paper and electronic research tools

c)    The mechanics of how to use particular resources (for example, how to establish the significance of the “signals” used in LexisLibrary to indicate the status of a case decision)

d)    problems caused by library stock or with access to databases

If you’re unsure whether your query can or cannot be answered by library staff, please email
