  • Accessing the Wealth of Information through Databases

    March 31, 2015

    The Peace Palace Library is known as one of the leading legal libraries in the world and one of the services it provides for its users is access to a growing number of databases, invaluable tools for legal research. The efforts to introduce access to these databases in the Library started several years ago and they have been growing. These databases, around 85 of them now in 2015, are an incredibly rich resource and by investing some time and a little bit of effort, the user can maximize their value. This month, Iva Vukusic, a PhD student and journalist writes a review on our collection of databases with a special focus on our most popular database ‘Annotated Leading Cases of International Criminal Tribunals.

    Elodie Vanneste first visited the Peace Palace Library one year ago. For two months she was an intern at the Peace Palace Library and worked on a bibliography for the Centre for Studies and Research 2014 about: “The Rights of Women and the Elimination of all Forms of Discrimination”. She worked together with Elvira Cameron who works for the Peace Palace Library as a legal reference librarian. When Elodie first entered the premises of the Peace Palace she felt like having entered a ‘fairy tale castle’ so she was very impressed by our modern library.

    My experience with the Peace Palace Library began when I visited the City of The Hague for the first time when I was a legal intern at the Special Tribunal for Lebanon (STL) in 2013. Since then, and as I’m doing a PHD research in the field of international criminal law, I’ve been enjoying consulting the database collection of the Peace Palace Library which is the most complete collection of international law books I’ve ever come across.
