Heads up for lawyers in Ontario: the Law Society has changed the way you remotely access HeinOnline. Previously, lawyers could ask their local library for the password for logging in to the program, but because it was a single common login the password would change every six months. Starting last week, however, the Law Society has issued a new remote access procedure through EZproxy software. This will allow a static and persistent login and password for each individual lawyer, and it also means the previous username and passwords will not work!
HeinOnline is a fantastic resource for journal articles and historical Canadian legislation; we highly recommend it, and it’s free for Ontario lawyers! To get set up for your new access, contact the Law Society by email with your name, affiliation and law society number.
