Unfortunately this includes the lexisnexis NZ site as well.

Discussion of a Law Libraries purpose in the 21st Century

In a recent issue of the Law Library Journal entitled the Twenty-First Century Law Library a panel discussed the concept and evolution of the law library in response to the celebration of the renovation of Duke University’s Goodson Law Library in November 2008.

Hidden features in the revamped Law Library

We now have three photocopiers available in the Law Library. Two are on the 8th floor almost opposite the Issues and Information desk. The third is down on the 7th floor Central Block, amongst the International Journals and International textbook collection.

Do not forget you can load money on your copy card at the main 8th Floor desk - cash or eftpos.
