Lexis Advance Quicklaw webinar

The library has organized a Lexis Advance Quicklaw webinar on Wednesday February 17th from 1:00 p.m. to 2:00 p.m.

Here are some of the new features and functionality that will be highlighted in the webinar:

Learn to search the broadest collection of Canadian primary and secondary sources using a  new design that features a streamlined single intuitive search box allowing you to search as you like. As well, you will learn how selecting favorite sources or pre-search filters can help narrow your starting point.

Discover how to search by name, by source or topic, citation or keyword; navigate and refine search results; deliver documents; note up cases and statutes using the QuickCITE Case Citator and the QuickCITE Legislation Citator.

Discover how the ‘History Content Pod’ can help you streamline your workflow by viewing your search history, search terms, most recently opened documents, or, by viewing a graphical map of your search activities allowing you to jump right back into any part of your research.

See how highlighting and annotating can help you keep track of important and relevant material by saving them to customizable and sharable folders.

New Legal History Journal Subscription

Jus Gentium Front CoverThe Osgoode Library now subscribes to JUS GENTIUM: Journal of International Legal History, the first issue of which has just recently been published. Jus Gentium is the first American journal dedicated to addressing the history of international law. Much of modern scholarship on the history of international law is preoccupied not with international law, but with international legal doctrine; the doctrinal writings of remarkably few individuals dominate the discourse while the rest remain unseen or overlooked. This journal will encourage further exploration in the archives, for new materials and confirmation of the accuracy of past uses, but welcoming the continued reassessment of international legal history in all of its dimensions.

Our subscription is online only and is available on the HeinOnline Law Journals Library.
