The Supreme Court of Canada (SCC) announced today that, working in co-operation with Lexum, all decisions published in the Supreme Court Reports dating back to 1876 are now available on the SCC Judgments website. Over the past 20 years, the SCC and Lexum have been working collaboratively, together with partners such as the Law Foundation of Ontario, the Law Foundation of British Columbia, the Alberta Law Foundation, the Centre d’accès à l’information juridique in Quebec, CanLII and others, to fill in gaps in the Supreme Court judgment database. This work, begun so many years ago, is now nearly complete.
The free availability of judgments dating back to 1876 on the Web is part of the SCC’s commitment to making case-related information accessible. All of these newly-added SCC decisions can also be found in the CanLII database at http://www.canlii.org/en/ca/scc/.

Past exams come very handy and useful at this time of the year. They are now available through the My Osgoode page; note that you have to be logged in. Print version for previous years are available on the last shelf in the Upper Floor of the Law Library.
To access them online, on the My Osgoode page under the subheading “Programs & Records”, select “Exams & Assignments”:
Select “Exam Archive”.
HeinOnline has added an enhancement to its Print/Download option. This new option allows you to download and print the number of pages you want by clicking on “Add another page range“; continue by clicking “Print/Download All”.
It works on all browsers, but if you’re using Chrome you have to click “Show All Downloads” to see all the files you downloaded.
Remember to disable the pop-up blocker in order to use this feature.
Happy New Year and welcome back everyone!
Here are some quick reminders about the library’s Core Collection –
- ALWAYS CHECK OUT ANYTHING either from the self-checkout machines or from the Circulation Desk staff.
- NO RENEWALS
- ALWAYS RETURN TO THE ITEM RETURN BOX at the Circulation Desk, do not put them back on the shelf yourself.
By doing these, you are helping others (students and faculty) who need to use the same book; once a book is checked out the system will give library staff the information about when it will be returned. You’re also saving library staff time from having to look all over the place. Returning them to the item box allows us to shelf them back so that the next user will find them in the right spot.
Note also that some of these titles are available in the general collection in the Lower Library or even as eBooks which you can access from your laptops or electronic devices.
Remember to always ask for assistance from our friendly librarians and library staff.
Thank you and have a productive term!
