CATALOGUING TOOLS AND RESOURCES UTILISATION AS CORRELATE OF CATALOGUERS’ JOB PERFORMANCE IN UNIVERSITY LAW LIBRARIES IN SOUTHERN NIGERIA

CHAPTER ONE 

INTRODUCTION

 Background of the Study

 Law libraries are cornerstones of legal education, research and practice all over the world. They are special libraries and serve the information needs of law students and law teachers, legal practitioners, paralegals and general public. Law libraries generally are found in universities, law schools, law research institutes, courts of all kinds, legislative houses, ministry of justice and private law firms. The importance of law libraries (university law libraries inclusive) can be better understood from the stand point of lawyers who equate its importance to a laboratory. Just as a laboratory is important to laboratory scientists, so also is a law library to lawyers (Milles, 2004; Dada, 2011). Thus, the success of any lawyer or a law student depends on the access and utilisation of a large collection of legal information resources. Gilbert (1908) succinctly explains that there is no class of men, professional or otherwise as dependent upon books as the lawyer and that the lawyer’s books are his tools without which he would be unable to provide for himself and his family. These assertions have a strong bearing on the study and practice of law. Whether as a law student, law teacher or legal practitioner, a lawyer engages in finding, interpreting and applying the law to solve societal problems. The law is embedded in legal information resources which the lawyer must have access to in order to do his job. Legal information resources are made up of local and foreign primary and secondary sources of law. Ryesky (2007) explains that constitutions, statutes, judicial opinions and administrative regulations are considered primary authorities while pronouncements of private parties or entities such as journal articles, treatises, restatements and model codes are secondary legal authorities. Legal information resources generally consist of parliamentary publications such as Acts, laws, by-laws, constitutions; courts decisions in form of law reports; and legal texts such as text books, journals, reviews, reference sources, case books and non-legal texts. The multi-disciplinary nature of law makes the law library collection enormous. Moreover, advances in information and communication technologies have greatly impacted on law and its information resources. Thus, among the collections of law libraries are included digital resources such as Easy law, Digital Rules of Courts and Legalpedia and well established legal databases such as LexisNexis, Westlaw, Law Pavilion and Bloomberg. Other free online legal resources and legal sites exist that the law libraries organise for access.
