Summon will be undertaking some updates that will result in system downtime for up to 24 hours from 09:00 Saturday 29 May to 09:00 Sunday 30 May.
This means that Summon will be available for searching, but some of the links may be unavailable.
If you have been planning to use Summon for research the weekend of the 29- 30 May, we would recommend downloading any articles or chapters you will need from Summon before the outage, so that your studies are not impacted.
During this period of lockdown, the University has been granted access to Law Trove.
It enables you to search and interrogate the wealth of Oxford’s textbook law list.
To login, use the ‘Sign in via your Institution‘ option on the left hand side.
