Westlaw UK: new enhancements

Westlaw UK introduced several enhancements in August 2012:

IMAGES IN DOCUMENTS

“Westlaw UK recently launched over 19,000 original images for display within provisions of legislation, as well as in the body of full-text documents in case reports and journal articles.* You can view these images online, as well as have the ability to print, save and email images within documents, with all of them appearing as they should within the text. This lets you work more efficiently as you will no longer have to refer to the print version to locate images or tables, or print images seperately and then re-sort in to the correct order. Images are available for all cases and journals from 2002 onwards and for legislation from 1987.”
