The Law Library Team is happy to have everyone back!
While you were away, librarians and library staff have worked very hard to bring you new resources.
There is a new display area on the Upper Level of the library where you can browse all the new publications that have recently been acquired including Faculty publications. Soft seating is available in this area.
You can sign up to receive notifications for the New Titles LibGuide available on the Law Library website – https://researchguides.library.yorku.ca/lawlibrarynewacquisitions
Online access to the Canadian Guide to Uniform Legal Citation (9th edition) a.k.a McGill Guide is now available in addition to the print copies.
The Law Library Team will like to wish you a successful and productive academic year! Stop by to speak to any of us for your library related questions.
In September 2016, Lexis Nexis launched a new interface called Lexis Advance Quicklaw. Since then you have still been able to access the old LexisNexisQuicklaw interface.
Effective August 31, 2018, the old LexisNexis Quicklaw will no longer be available.
Now would be a good time for you to create a new Lexis Advance Quicklaw account if you haven’t already done so.
