Library Tours

We are always happy for this time of year when we welcome new students to the CCLA Library! We would love to invite any interested to schedule tours of the library. These tours are a great opportunity to meet library staff and learn about library resources, training opportunities, and services which may support and assist you in your practice. We also encourage any and all to sign up for the CCLA Newsletter to begin learning about news, events, and opportunities in the East Region.

Tours will be held on Tuesdays and Thursdays at 10:30 AM and 2:30 PM. Please contact Brenda Lauritzen, the CCLA Library’s Reference Librarian, at or 613-233-7386 x222 to schedule a tour. We look forward to seeing you soon!

Save the Date for HeadStart Ottawa: Legal Research for Articling Students!

If you will be taking on any articling students this summer, mark August 16th, 2013 in your calendar! The CCLA Library is presenting a half-day session on legal research, designed exclusively for new articling students. We first held HeadStart Ottawa last year, based on long-running program of the same name in Edmonton. Our program covers the research tools students have available (either through our Library or online) that will be vital to the research they will take on during their articling year.

The cost of the session will be $25.00, and will also include your student’s CCLA Membership for the articling term (which gives members 24/7 access to our library, among other great perks). Seating will be limited, so don’t delay in registering your student with us! If you’d like us to add your student to the RSVP list, please send us an email.

Also back this year will be our free Articling Student Luncheon. This luncheon will take place after HeadStart, and will be held in the CCLA Library. If your student won’t be able to make the session, they are still invited to lunch – we’d love to meet them!

Much more information will be coming, so watch for details over the next few months!
