New resorce for finding Canadian government and legislative publications

The Association of Parliamentary Libraries in Canada (APLIC) has announced the release of its unique pan-Canadian bilingual government and legislative publications portal GALLOPP (Government and Legislative Libraries Online Publications Portal) / PPGPE (Portail des publications gouvernementales et parlementaires électroniques). This portal is a result of collaboration between provincial and territorial legislative libraries from across Canada and the federal government’s Depository Services Program (DSP). It provides one-stop access to over 320,000 electronic provincial, territorial and federal government publications and legislative materials dating back to 1995 that were collected by Legislative libraries in Canada for their jurisdictions. As of 2013-07-12 the portal provides full-text access to the content from the electronic government documents collections of the following libraries:

  • Alberta Legislature Library
  • Legislative Library of British Columbia
  • Manitoba Legislative Library
  • New Brunswick Legislative Library
  • Newfoundland and Labrador Legislative Library
  • Northwest Territories Legislative Library
  • Nova Scotia Legislative Library
  • Ontario Legislative Library
  • Library of the National Assembly, Québec
  • Saskatchewan Legislative Library
  • Government of Canada-Depository Services Program

The portal can be accessed through our Law Subject Guide, in the Canadian Legislation and Cases section.

New study space on the 4th floor and new desks in the Humphrey room

Now, our students can enjoy an additional study space on the 4th floor next to the Peel street side of the building. To preserve the initial “look and feel” of the library space, we had the custom-made Law Library’s desks from the Humphrey room moved to the new study space at the 4th floor, while the Humphrey room got more study spots with the new desks similar in style to our historical furniture.

Welcome back!

Dear Law students, it is nice to see you back! Your library was busy during the study break, and we have two major additions that will make the Law Library even more comfortable place to study: new computers in the classroom and new/ remodelled study spaces at the 2nd and 4th floors.
