faculty, JD student, graduate student or participating in the Moot Team, there’s
something for everyone in the Osgoode Library’s growing collection. Here are
some of the latest acquisitions in the library’s collection:
Edward Elgar E-Books The content of this collection includes titles published in 2018 and 2019 in all areas of law.
Kluwer Arbitration Online This database provides access to books, journals, and practice tools on international commercial arbitration.
Democracy in America This is a digital edition of Alexis de Tocqueville’s work, with added annotations and references.
Lexis Practice Advisor and Canadian Legislative Pulse can now be easily accessed through a single sign-in. With this new feature, users can switch from Quicklaw to Practice Advisor or Legislative Pulse using the product switcher located in the top left corner of the screen (pictured below).
Practice Advisor has also improved content browsing, which allows quick access to specific content from a practice area, or the option to view all content.
Legislative Pulse provides a one-stop option to access daily updates to federal
and provincial bills. It also includes links to full texts of all available
versions of bills.
In honour of Labour Day, the library has made a slide presentation detailing the history of labour day and some of the most important labour cases in Canadian history. Also included is a display of several library books that discuss the history of labour day and some of the legal aspects of Canadian labour law.
The slide presentation and display is located in the little corner just outside the library in Gowlings Hall. Thanks to Beck Schaefer, cataloguing assistant, and Daniel Perlin, associate librarian, for making the display possible.
First year JD students are invited to come to the library for a tour of the rare book room. Learn about what the library and the rare book room has to offer! The tour will take place on Monday September 9th. One tour will take place at 1:30pm. The other will take place at 2pm. Each tour will have a maximum of 20 students each.
