Brill eBooks on International law and Human rights

By | 7 April 2016


The Law Library has just bought an eBook package from Brill/Nijhoff for recent books on international law, and human rights and humanitarian law.  This provides full text access to 133 books from 2015 onwards, and all the books are catalogued in SOLO so you can link through easily to the Brill platform, Brill Online.  Then you can read the book directly from the website, or download it.

New books on these subjects will become available as soon as they are published.

A great feature of this package is that readers can buy a basic paperback version of any favourite eBook using the Brill ‘My Book’ option.Brillmybook  The price is usually 25 Euros plus tax (about £25 total, a huge reduction from the usual print prices).  To do this, you will need to create a personal account, which also allows you to mark your favourites, see your search history, and set up publication alerts.
