Upon reading this as a starting point, I went to the Law subject guide to use the resourceful links there. This was found through the Library website and I firstly went to the Legal Encyclopedia which can be found by using the Laws of New Zealand link. This took me to the LexisNexis website and the term I wanted to find was ‘Constitution’ and this was found under ‘Constitutional Law” and had nine subheadings under it. To understand the nature of the topic I looked at the first two sections. The first one gave me a greater understanding as to what I was discussing in my essay, mentioning the definition, sources it was found in as well as characteristics of the New Zealand constitution. The second heading talked about the conventions of constitution and the importance of these for New Zealand constitution. Both of these were extremely helpful in understanding my topic and why it was of importance.

Another way to search for a journal article, was to search Google Scholar, but this was much more limited, as some were not relevant to New Zealand, and some could not be fully accessed. I decided to try LinxPlus and search by the topic. Simply searching for ‘Constitution’ turned back over 2000 results, so I had to adapt my search terms to narrow down my results. This time I tried, ‘New Zealand, Constitution’ and only 21 results came back. Several of these looked helpful, and most of them were able to be found either using the Library database, or by using the multisearch tool. On LinxPlus there was also a helpful feature where you could find cases that were considered by that article.
