About the School

Reaching the researchers

Talking Humanities

Since its foundation in 1947 the librarians at the Institute of Advanced Legal Studies have been concerned with how best to provide a library service for postgraduate researchers in law from across the country - despite the ilbrary being based in central London. Lisa Davies introduces Law PORT and its collection of online training resources - a new project aiming to try and bridge this gap.

Talking Humanities is the School of Advanced Study's flagship digital publication and covers groundbreaking humanities research throughout the UK.
