“No one would dispute that the duty to provide for those that you have a legal and moral obligation to support is very important. With the movement and migration of people both within Europe and globally there are more and more families and relations who live in different states. Therefore it is imperative that suitable and workable methods exist to create maintenance obligations and then secure the transfer of funds, particularly from abroad. In this book the provisions in EU Maintenance Regulation no 4/2009 and the Hague Maintenance Convention of 2007 are analysed in order to discover what developments and therefore potential improvements have been made in relation to the recovery of maintenance from abroad. It also includes an empirical study on the first year of operation of the Maintenance Regulation. Data collected has been analysed in order to supplement the critique of the instruments. The information and analysis is used to suggest suitable solutions for the future which include, amendments to the Regulation and recommendations for best practice.”

In the summer 2015, we commemorate the 20th anniversary of the last and most extensive refurbishment of the Taylor Library. To celebrate the occasion, the Taylor Library Team would like to present our readers with a short history of the library.
The article aims to follow the development of the site from the mid-1950s till today. It will outline the most important events, how the service improved and how the collections were enriched.
We guarantee that the old photographs that illustrate the story will capture your imagination.
We are delighted to introduce a new service to help you make the most of the resources and services at Taylor Library. The ‘Tip of the Day’ service will be launched before the start of the next exam period.
From the middle of April, we will deliver useful tips to you regarding:
Other online resources (e-books, e-journals)
And much, much more…
We hope you will find this daily service advantageous for your study and research.
The latest additions to our collection are listed on the new acquisitions page. Have a look here to see what we acquired in September. You can click on the shelfmark for each entry and it will take you to that book’s record on PRIMO. From there you can view further details and make reservations where applicable.
