Laws of New Zealand

The Library has subscribed to the electronic version of the legal encyclopedia Laws of New Zealand.

This resource has approximately 150 subject titles (eg animals, environment, family protection, recreation and entertainment) with each title covering all aspects of the NZ law relating to the subject area, including a table of statutes and cases.

Laws of New Zealand is available as part of the Library's Lexis-Nexis subscription. It can be found on the A-Z databases list and on the Law subject page.

The Library's subscription to the print version of Laws of New Zealand has been discontinued.

EndNote XI now available

The latest edition of the citation management software EndNote is now available to be borrowed from the library. EndNote is only available on CD-ROM. It cannot be downloaded. To obtain an EndNote CD simply go to the Issues desk at any branch of the Library. At present only Windows CDs are available.

The main difference from earlier editions is the ability to create groups of references on a similar subject. Existing EndNote libraries can easily be transferred from EndNote X to EndNote XI.
