LIAC cut

The Legal Information Access Centre (LIAC) is a specialist information service of the State Library of NSW. Since 1990 LIAC has done a great job by making specialist legal research services, and plain English legal information and educational resources – including the TU's Tenants' Rights Manual – available to the general public.

But now LIAC's funding (from the Public Purpose Fund) has been cut.

We understand that LIAC will continue to operate, but there will be no longer a specialist information service point staffed by legal librarians, nor specialist support for HSC Legal Studies students.

We hope full funding is restored to this valuable service. Please consider telling your local State MP how much you value LIAC.
