Alberta Law Libraries’ Free Electronic Text Collection is Expanding
The Alberta Law Libraries (ALL) is a provincial network of law libraries existing to provide research support and information services to the legal community, self-represented litigants and all Albertans. ALL subscribes to a selection of online legal research resources that support provincial, federal and international legal research, and their electronic collection continues to grow. Access to the ALL remote collection is free for Alberta lawyers registered with their library.
One such resource in their collection is Westlaw’s Topical Texts and Annotations, an electronic series of authoritative texts and annotations from leading experts, based on specific subject areas. ALL has recently purchased five new collections: Corporate Commercial; Family; Real Property; Insurance; and Privacy. This increases their collection to more than 165 remotely available texts in addition to other titles provided online from Irwin Law and Emond.
Unlimited free access to Westlaw Canada databases and collections is available in ALL public locations. Lawyers who have an account with the library can also contact LawLibrary@just.gov.ab.ca for temporary remote access to Westlaw Canada. ALL also offers several customized legal research services to Alberta lawyers registered with the library.
Visit the ALL website for more details and information on other changes coming into effect in January. If you have any further questions, please contact LawLibrary@just.gov.ab.ca or Ask a Law Librarian.
