Tips on Blogging

January 29, 2015 / Leave a comment

Recently, Holly posted this blog post on blogging for the CLLG Blog.  Since then, I  came across this blog post on Slaw by Gary Wise on “Tips on Law Blogging” and thought I would share it you.  “Tips on Law Blogging” is written for lawyers who what to blog about legal issues on their firm websites, but the blogging principles are pretty much the same, whether you are blogging for Clients or Information Professionals.

CALL/ACBD Petition for the Creation of a New LRW Special Interest Group

January 27, 2015  

At the CALL/ACBD Academic SIG meeting in 2013, group members were generally agreed that it would be a good idea to create a new special interest group through CALL devoted to Legal Research and Writing.

If you wish to view and/or sign the petition, you can do so here.

A blog post about posting on the blog

January 22, 2015

It’s January. How are your New Year’s resolutions coming along? Was one of them to connect with the Calgary law library community and beyond? Well, if becoming a regular contributor to the CLLG News/Blog wasn’t on your “2015 To Do List”, we at CLLG think it should be. Here are a couple ideas to get you thinking:

Have you recently attended a seminar/webinar/course your colleagues would be interested in hearing about?

Do you follow any law and/or library blog or Twitter feed?  

Are you active in other organizations whose news would be relevant to CLLG?

I know there are many who can answer “yes” to one, if not all of the above. If you are one of those people, contact the CLLG Webmasters about becoming a regular contributor to the CLLG News/Blog.

Posting is a quick and easy way to engage your colleagues and contribute to your professional community. Putting it that way, adding “regular contributor” to your “2015 To Do List” won’t be challenging at all.

Looking forward to hearing from you!

Alberta Judgments No Longer Available On The Court’s Website

January 8, 2015

If you missed Kim Clarke’s (Head of the Bennett Jones Law Library) message to the CLLG listserv yesterday, I am re-posting that information here.  It appears that Alberta judgments have been moved to CanLII and are no longer available from the Court’s Website. This applies to QB and PC decisions and not CA judgments (although the Court Administration Services webpage indicates otherwise). At the time of writing this post, I was able to search and access CA decisions directly from the Court’s website. Perhaps, it is just a matter of time and all Alberta Judgments will only be available on CanLII. To be honest, I rarely used the Court’s website to find judgments, except for a decision that was very recent (last 48 hours).
