Here’s a cool new feature we just learned about in our library’s WestlawNext Canada subscription.
Black’s Law Dictionary, the most well-known legal dictionary on the market, is now tucked away (but free to use in our library) under the “International” tab.
From the home screen, you will want to select the “International” tab:
From there, you can find a link out to the Black’s Law Dictionary underneath the Westlaw US document titles:
This will open a new screen and log you into the American version of Westlaw’s interface for the Black’s dictionary. There is a dedicated search screen for this title, so you will only be searching within the dictionary itself – not the other American content on Westlaw.
Et voilà, your results list!
If you have WestlawNext at your office, see if this is included in your LawSource package (but of course, be mindful of what charges might be incurred for this search first). As always, any Westlaw work you do at the library is free of charge.
