Lexis Library Unavailable – News and Legislation etc. from other sources

We currently don’t have access to Lexis Library – the issue is on the vendor side and they’re working to resolve it ASAP.

Lexis has a lot of unique content so you may not be able to find what you’re after elsewhere.  However, until the fix is applied you could try the following:

ProQuest Central for UK and International news and newspaper content (including Financial Times – there is a one month embargo on FT content)

Westlaw UK for case law, legislation, EU law and journal content.

Sorry for the inconvenience; we’ll let you know as soon as access has been restored by Lexis.

For any queries about this or any other Library resources (print and online), please contact us
