Magna Data: From Magna Carta to Big Data
Celebrating the 800th anniversary of Magna Carta, the 25th anniversary of the New Zealand Bill of Rights Act 1990, and a miscellany of marvellous matters.
This year’s New Zealand Law Librarian’s Association Conference was held in Auckland on 10 and 11 September. In this special year of significant anniversaries, the conference gave participants a great opportunity to reflect on aspects of legal heritage, rights, and the role of librarians; to learn and share; and to look to the future, while enjoying professional networking with colleagues at social events in the stunning environment of the Sir Paul Reeves Building at the Auckland University of Technology.
One of the speakers, Chief Parliamentary Counsel, David Noble, has kindly allowed us to to make his paper available.
