    Thomson Reuters has published a white paper on the changing role of today's law librarian based on a survey of US law firm librarians.

    Happy reading!

    The Vancouver Association of Law Libraries (VALL) has compiled a Primer to Legislative Research Across the Provinces and Territories.  This resource was published in the spring volume of the VALL Review (Spring 2017, Vol. 29, No. 2) and incorporates contributions from law librarians across Canada.

    While the Primer is currently missing information for Quebec and New Brunswick, it is still a highly valuable research tool!

    Hat tip to the Law Society of Saskatchewan Library's Legal Sourcery blog for sharing this resource!
