    Project Description

    The international law library on the AustLII-operated WorldLII system already provides the most comprehensive free-access location of international law research materials, attracting over 2 million annual page accesses. This project to transform the library will expand its content (international case law, treaties, other key resources and commentary); improve its distribution (e.g. RSS feeds for new cases); automate updating processes; add extensive metadata as citation histories; and provide other metrics so users can recognise significant materials. Necessary processing, storage and scanning equipment will be acquired. All international law research will be improved, as will Australian leadership in research infrastructure
