    What is happening to WestlawUK?

    • Product: Primo Central

    Due to recent changes to Thomson Reuter's Westlaw UK - Journals platform several modifications are being implemented in Primo Central.
    • Effective immediately the collection has been redefined as Link to Resource.
    • The Operations Team has reconfigured the direct links in Primo Central.  The new links became available 5 August 2019.
    • With the introduction of the new links, Westlaw urls no longer require institution specific parameters.  New generic links are provided in the records and the WestlawUK_linking template is irrelevant.  In the future, the superfluous template will be removed, during routine maintenance operations
    • At present Thomson Reuters cannot support the SFX/Alma Westlaw targets and they will be suspended.
    • Depending on access methods and proxies, this transition, may vary from customer to customer.  Please provide feedback to ProQuest-ExLibris and directly to Thomson Reuters-Westlaw so that pending issues can be resolved in a timely fashion.
