Depending on the area of law you have been asked to research, a policy document might be looking at a Law Reform Commission report in relation to legislation to be passed. Other policy documents might be specialist reports from statutory bodies, and these could be searched in the Catalogue if you know the author's name or corporate author.  If authors aren't known, search by the subject area. 

If you are looking for a recent document, a good starting point is to look at newspapers or newswires in Australia via Australia & New Zealand Newsstream found in A-Z Databases under A.
