Farewell Brookers NZ Legal Databases, Welcome Westlaw NZ

January 28, 2013

Westlaw NZ is the replacement suite of databases for Brookers NZ Legal Databases. Both are available to access at present but that is about to change.

From Thursday 7th February 2013, Brookers NZ Legal Databases will no longer be available to use.

There is no loss of content, but there is a a different look.

If you have links to Brookers NZ Legal databases on your Stream pages, study guides or anywhere else, please remove them and use the Westlaw NZ  link instead.



I am arranging a training session at Turitea  for as close as possible to the 7th – I will advertise this when it is confirmed.

I am also working on a quick guide to using Westlaw NZ – in the meantime there is a help tab on the Westlaw NZ search page.

To access Westlaw NZ on campus, from the Library Homepage,  you can either choose Article Databases, W, then Westlaw go to this resource OR

From the Library Catalogue, type Westlaw NZ, search, go to this resource.

Do not enter your Massey Login, but click on the IP Users, click here to log on link.

Off campus, you will get a log-in box after you click go to this resource – use your usual Massey network login and then click IP Users, click here to log on when you reach the Westlaw NZ log-in page.


Type keyword/s or phrase into the main search box to search all content – refine using the filters at the left side of the screen.

Or Browse using the drop down menu next to Browse By:

You can also browse by unticking Search All Content Type and ticking the area you want to search – Cases, Legislation & commentary, journals, Forms & precedents, News & current awareness, government & regulatory materials.

If you click on one of the areas shown above, you will get access to an Advanced Search (look for that under the Search button).
