If you are a regular reader of the Law Society of Manitoba’s newsletter, Communiqué, you’ve probably seen the notice at the back of each issue saying “Save the date”. We’ve known Chief Justice Wagner would be visiting and speaking, but what was just released on May 14th is news that the entire Court would be sitting in Winnipeg. As an SCC fangirl, this is exciting news.
What it means for the library is we will be closed September 25th and 26th to visitors, but we will aim to have remote delivery of services to members. As it gets closer to the date, we will send out notification regarding how you can reach us.
The Great Library has been hosting a student from the Library and Information Technology program at Red River College for the past two weeks. Artemis Hedrich is in the final few months of the program, and this was an opportunity for her to see how a law library works. With help from legal information professional Allyssa McFadyen, she put together a display on the many resources of Manitoba law that are available both here at the Great Library and online.
