 "The library is not a shrine for the worship of books. It is not a temple where literary incense must be burned or where one's devotion to the bound book is expressed in ritual. A library, to modify the famous metaphor of Socrates, should be the delivery room for the birth of ideas - a place where history comes to life." 
                                                                                  
— Cited in ALA Bulletin, Oct. 1954, p.475 Norman COUSINS (1915- )

Research Resources

Here are some useful online resources:

Basic Legal Citation (2011)

Introduction to Basic Legal Citation (online ed. 2011) by Peter W. Martin.  This work first appeared in 1993. It was most recently revised in the fall of 2011 to take account of changes in the citation rules of a number of U.S. jurisdictions, having been revised the year before to reflect the appearance of the fourth edition of the ALWD Citation Manual and the nineteenth edition of The Bluebook, both published in 2010.

Cardiff Index to Legal Abbreviations

Legal abbreviations can be a puzzle to both new students and experienced professionals. This web-based service allows you to search for the meaning of abbreviations for English language legal publications, from the British Isles, the Commonwealth and the United States, including those covering international and comparative law. A wide selection of major foreign language law publications is also included. Publications from over 295 jurisdictions are featured in the Index. The database mainly covers law reports and law periodicals, but some legislative publications and major textbooks are also included. The Index is still under development.

International Labour Organization    

The ILO is the international organization responsible for drawing up and overseeing international labour standards. It is the only 'tripartite' United Nations agency that brings together representatives of governments, employers and workers to jointly shape policies and programmes promoting Decent Work for all.

Digital Legislative Library

Providing easy access to the Laws of Trinidad and Tobago from 1838 to 2014. This website is owned by the Government of Trinidad and Tobago. It was created and is being continuously updated and managed by the Law Revision Commission which falls under the purview of the Ministry of Legal Affairs.  This site enables not only point-in-time searching which allows the law to be viewed at specified times in consolidated form but also gives access to the amending legislation which would have altered the laws over time. An interesting and notable feature of the site is that it includes those available volumes of the Federal Laws which would have been applicable to Trinidad and Tobago during the years of the West Indian Federation.

Law Libraries

These libraries are an invaluable source of information and caters to the diverse needs of their clientele.

Ministry of Labour and Small Enterprise Development

The Ministry of Labour and Small Enterprise Development is the Government’s implementation arm for the national strategies and realization of the goals/objectives for the labour sector. Influenced by regional hemispheric and international obligations, the work of the Ministry is multi-dimensional in its approach as it aims for the continuous encouragement of a sustainable, productive, and stable industrial relations climate in the work place.
