The Legal Publishers Search facility on AustLII allows AustLII users to obtain more efficient access to the legal content provided by Australia's commercial legal publishers who are participating in the development of the service.
The Legal Publishers Search now searches the following content:
the full text of all online publications of CCH Australia Limited, one of Australia's largest legal publishers.
the full text of WorkplaceInfo, an online service for employee relations information, published by Australian Business Limited.
To use the Legal Publishers Search, you can either:
simply click on "Legal Publishers" at the head of your page of AustLII search results, and your previous AustLII search will be repeated over all the Legal Publishers' databases.
select "Search Legal Publishers" from the front page of AustLII (right column), and enter your search terms and (if you wish) a selection of legal publishers to search.
select the Search Australian Legal Publishers search form.
Results of your search are displayed separately for each legal publisher searched.
First, the total number of results is displayed (eg "Legal Publishers - Documents found: 2974"), then the number of results from each separate legal publisher's databases (eg CCH Online: 2088 | WorkplaceInfo: 886) is displayed.
If you select "More from [name of publisher]" at the end of the search results page, you will be shown the complete list of results from that publisher.
When you go to a search result from the list, you will be taken to the publication on the website of the relevant legal publisher (not on AustLII).
If you are already a subscriber to that online publication with the relevant legal publisher, you will be taken to the particular document selected. You may have to log in to the publisher's website before being taken to the document.
If you are not already a subscriber to that publication, the legal publisher may offer you a trial subscription. You cannot access these legal publsiher subscriber-only documents without some form of subscription.
