Virtual Reference Desk for law students who are not studying on
Emalus Campus in Vanuatu 

 [Back to Law Resources page]

 Welcome to the Emalus Campus Library online virtual reference desk.  This is a new service to support students studying the LLB and LLM programmes online who do not have access to the Emalus Campus Library.  We welcome your comments and suggestions. 

 In addition to the online materials available to you that are accessable from the Law Resources page, there are also some useful hardcopy materials available to Laucala based students.

  see Selected hard copy law resources available for Suva based students

Both the Emalus Campus Library catalogue and Laucala Campus Library Catalogue can be searched online and you should see your campus / centre librarian to arrange interloans of these materials. 

If you find a reference on the Emalus Library's Online Digital Collection  to a full text online document but you can not download it because of slow internet speed please Email the librarian to request a copy via email attachment. 

If you have a reference question please follow the link below and I will try to respond to your query within a 24 hour period.  Please browse the most frequently asked questions (below) first to see if your question has already been answered.
