Busy Beavers Visualise Videos

While students and staff are heads-down sitting or marking exams, Carolyn and I have been busy making videos.
We hope to eventually create a suite of short videos to help you navigate through the maze of legal research, and share some of our hard-earned tips and tricks along the way.
For your immediate viewing pleasure, we have a Virtual Tour, and How to Find NZ Statutes in the Law Library, and How to Find Cases on a Statute. The latter 2 are on the Law Subject Guide Strategies page, along with a few other 'goodies' to aid your legal research.
The world of videos is a new foray for us, so every kind of feedback is very welcome!
