As we’re unable to host any training sessions in the Library for the next while, we wanted to direct you to some online legal research training options. We’ll be holding online sessions of our own over the year (dates will continue to be added), but these are some options available for you to do from your own office right now:
For WestlawNext Canada / Thomson Reuters ProView …
Thomson Retuers continually offers webinars on their online products, such as Westlaw and ProView, that are both free and CPD accredited.
These modules (listed in blue towards the top of this page) will give a simulated learning experience for Thomson products.
Find out more about specific features of WestlawNext with these short videos and PDF files.
