Brookers NZ Legal Databases now Westlaw NZ

December 11, 2012

Brookers NZ Legal Databases has been superseded by Westlaw NZ, a new product from Thomson Reuters.

At present both options are available but from the third week of January 2013, Brookers will be discontinued and only Westlaw will be available.

There is no loss of content, but the ‘look and feel’ is quite different.

To access Westlaw, please follow the link from the Article Databases page on the Library homepage, or click here. If you are off campus, you will be asked to login – use your Massey network login. After you login there, you will need to click “IP users, click here to log in” on the Westlaw page. Please note, the Library will not be using Client IDs.

This is the homepage for Westlaw NZ:

Westlaw NZ

Options for searching are here.

You can search by content type as shown above, or by practice area – akin to subject headings; Product Title – A-Z list of all the databases included in Westlaw NZ; or by Jurisdiction – country (New Zealand). These options are in the Browse by: drop down box.

Once you have chosen an area to search you have the option of a simple or an advanced search.  The Advanced Search link is underneath the Orange Search button.

How to search is under the Help link on the Westlaw NZ homepage, under Home Page, Section IIc – Terms and Connectors. ­­
