The Institute of Advanced Legal Studies (IALS)
The Institute of Advanced Legal Studies was founded in 1947. It was conceived and is funded as a national academic institution, attached to the University of London, serving all universities through its national legal research library. Its function is to promote, facilitate and disseminate the results of advanced study and research in the discipline of law, for the benefit of persons and institutions in the UK and abroad. The Library is a national and international resource for legal research and has over 310,000 volumes the majority of which are housed at the Institute site on Russell Square in Bloomsbury.
IALS Digital includes a range of established national online services for law and new publicly available web resources and research tools. Each project is designed to best meet the needs of a distinct legal information purpose and address the requirements of legal researchers.
IALS and its Global Law Library are actively involved in digital legal scholarship and innovative legal information delivery - developing and promoting public access to digital resources capable of supporting legal research on the Internet. Through the ongoing work of IALS Digital, the Institute is committed to extending the reach of digital provision of legal information by delivering specialist legal research tools and niche web services - maximising access to key or hard to find information to facilitate legal research, public understanding, and promote justice and the rule of law.
The role will be responsible to the IALS Librarian for the management, creation, update and further development and integration of the Institute’s range of web services, digital resources, open access initiatives and information systems. The IALS Digital Manager will be a member of the Institute’s Management Committee and the Senior Library Management Team, with a role in the formulation of policy, the improvement of library services and the creation of IALS digital strategy.
