COVID-19 FOI Request - ASIC's law library catalogue

Phillip Sweeney made this Freedom of Information request to Australian Securities and Investments Commission

The request was successful.

From: Phillip Sweeney

Delivered

Dear Australian Securities and Investments Commission,

Australian citizens would expect an agency tasked with enforcing the law would have a well-stocked law library.

All libraries have a catalogue to record what books are held by the library and where they can be located by Dewey Decimal Classification Number (or similar classification).

The FOI Act defines a document as: any paper or other material on which there is writing or a mark, figure or symbol. electronically stored information. a map, a plan, a drawing or a photograph.

The documents I seek are copies of a 'document', including electronically stored information, that would list all the books or other documents that could be classified as 'legal authorities' in ASIC's law library where the main title commences with the letters "Th"

Different ASIC offices may have their own law libraries.

If so, I seek a copy of the catalogue document for each ASIC office.

Yours faithfully,

Phillip Sweeney
