COVID-19 Vendor Response
The Australian Law Librarians’ Association does not endorse or recommend the following products or services. We provide information and listings we hope will be useful to our members and colleagues.
Accessing books in an online environment
The COVID-19 pandemic has radically changed the way we work, and the way we access our library resources.
While converting subscriptions (law reports, journals, loose-leaf services) from print to online was fairly straightforward*, "format shifting" for books has been more complicated.
We are seeking your feedback to understand your areas of concern - the format itself, the access model, pricing, etc.
Your contributions will be instrumental in shaping ALLA's submission to vendors.
While COVID-19 disrupts our lives, Australia's legal publishers are working hard to ensure we continue to have access to the content, services and insights we need.
You can find the latest information from the publishers about accessing your subscribed content, training guides and resources relevant to COVID-19.
Accessing legal resources online and training materials
Even though most of us are now working remotely and are separated from our print collections, many publishers are providing online access where customers have print subscriptions.
We are also including links to training resources.
