Upcoming Training: CanLII + Lexbox

Due to the success we had running the library’s first ever webinar back in February, we’ve decided we’d like to do it again! On Thursday, November 24 at 12:00 PM (Eastern), join us, from the comfort of your home or office, for an hour-long look at CanLII. We’ll dive into all the nice features of that website that you might not know how to do (like point-in-time legislation and noting up), as well as take a peek at LexBox, the cool (and free!) web app that allows you to organize and stay on top of your legal research. While we normally do not charge for our legal research sessions, we do have to charge a small fee for this session to cover the cost of the webinar platform. We hope that not having to contend with downtown traffic and parking will more than compensate for the charge!

#ThrowbackThursday: Movember 1905


This is a throwback to a throwback, admittedly, but some things are too good not to share. A few years back, Brenda made a truly fantastic album on our Facebook page: Movember 1905. Taking photo scans from a book we have in the library (The Bench and Bar of Ontario, Brown-Searle Printing Co., 1905), she found some of the best turn of the 20th century mustaches that Ottawa lawyers had to offer. To check out the full album, click here.

Since we’ve entered the month of November, this year’s Movember campaign is in full swing. You can learn all about the initiative at the Movember Foundation website.
