New from the Library Collection: Bloomsbury Law

The Law Library has recently acquired over 500 law-related titles from the Bloomsbury Collections. These resources, available in e-book format, will be useful to the academic study of law and legal research, as well as its practical application. Covering a broad range of topics with an international scope, the new resources are now available in the catalogue under the following sections:

New database: HeinOnline’s Business and Legal Aspects of Sports and Entertainment (BLASE)

Alongside a myriad of HeinOnline databases and resources that are available to Osgoode Hall Law School faculty and students, the law library is pleased to announce access to the Business and Legal Aspects of Sports and Entertainment (BLASE) database!

Designed to help researchers find relevant sources to understand the critical issues surrounding both sports and entertainment, BLASE offers comprehensive coverage of many business and legal areas. This includes antitrust and labour law, contracts, criminal law, gender and race discrimination, intellectual property, health and safety issues, and more, with access to over 8,000 scholarly articles, notable cases, legislative histories and government documents. While the database will be helpful to a broad range of students and faculty, BLASE will be a particularly useful resource to those in the Entertainment & Sports Law seminar.

Find it in the Library’s A-Z list of e-Resources, or access it through HeinOnline.
