Courthouse Libraries BC Launches Online Reading Room

As announced on The Stream, Courthouse Libraries BC has launched the Reading Room – a free online library for BC lawyers.

Says Kat Siddle, “The Reading Room is a vital part of our effort to shape our website and collections to meet the needs of the legal communities we serve. We’re bringing legal information to BC’s legal community – any time, any place. We think the Reading Room will be especially helpful to lawyers in small firms, lawyers in smaller communities, and new calls.”

Resources include:

  • 127 e-books
  • Over 1500 journals
  • SCC decisions
  • English Reports
  • US legislation
  • Historical Canadian legislation

These materials are available through CLBC’s subscriptions to HeinOnline and the Irwin Law e-library and may be accessed 24 hours a day.

To access the Reading Room, log in here. (You must be a member of the Law Society of BC and have or create a CLBC website account.)

Congratulations to Courthouse Libraries BC for developing this convenient and helpful new service!
