Using DelphiS for legal research

DelphiS is our ‘access and discovery’ system, designed to search across most of the library’s resources using one easy common interface.  In addition to the core law databases, you can use DelphiS to find journal articles on a variety of legal topics. If looking for cases and up-to-date legislation, use Westlaw, LexisLibrary and Justis.
