WestlawNext – Coming Soon to the CCLA Library!

Starting on Monday, June 2, 2014 , the CCLA Library will be switching over to WestlawNext. WestlawNext is the new platform for the Westlaw databases, and we think you’re going to really like the clean new interface. Once this switch is made, we will not have access to the old Westlaw interface (though some of you might still have access to that in your offices).

To help with this transition to the new version of Westlaw, we will be holding lunch time training sessions in the CCLA Library with a trainer from the company. As this new platform is significantly different than the program you have been using for many years, we highly recommend stopping in for a session. Please join us on any of the following dates:

Thursday, June 5, 2014 

Friday, June 13, 2014 

Friday, June 20, 2014

Friday, June 27, 2014 

For all dates listed above, the session will run from 12:00 PM to 1:00 PM in the CCLA Library (2004 – 161 Elgin Street).

As always, there are no costs for these sessions, and please feel free to bring along your lunch! To RSVP, please email Brenda Lauritzen, and indicate which session you will be coming to.

If you prefer learning from your office, there are online tutorials that you can watch. Those tutorials can be found by clicking here.

The CCLA staff have already been trained on this program, so if you’re in the library and need assistance, please don’t hesitate to ask any one of us for help. As always, we do not bill back for the documents retrieved through WestlawNext when you’re using our library subscription, so please feel free to explore the new program and learn how it works!
