Why use Newspapers


Newspapers are often discounted as sources of information as they are not 'academic'. However they can be very useful as they provide:

  • Legal news
  • Reports of recent cases
  • Information about local events
  • Current information

All broadsheet newspapers include legal news and case reports. 'The Times Law Reports' are available in The Times.

Box of Broadcasts - BOB 

BoB enables all staff and students in subscribing institutions to choose and record any broadcast programme from 60+ TV and radio channels. The recorded programmes are then kept indefinitely (no expiry) and added to a growing media archive (currently at over 1 million programmes), with all content shared by users across all subscribing institutions.
