This month brings a few new features and additions to CanLII and HeinOnline.
CanLII has added the ability to upload your own documents to Lexbox. This new feature lets you keep all your research in one place and use CanLII’s resources like Reflex to automatically link to cited cases and legislation. You can also set up alerts and feeds based on information in your document. For those who subscribe to Clio, you can also now link to CanLII to add a timer straight to the header of every page.
While you are over on CanLII, check out this blog post that analyses how COVID-19 has affected how people are using CanLII, what they are looking for, and why that might be. It includes a really cool animated bar graph.
Over on HeinOnline, they have added a long desired search feature. Users can now search multiple selected databases at a time, right from their HeinOnline welcome page. Now, instead of searching one database at a time, you can select the ones you think will be most useful. This also includes filtering results to help narrow down queries.
HeinOnline has also continued to add new journals to its Law Journal Library, with a collection of now 2,900 titles. If you are interested more in specific authors, scroll down to their Tip of the Month to read more about their Author profile pages.
Among the new journals added this month, HeinOnline now provides current coverage of the Journal of Space Law. “Published by University of Mississippi School of Law since 1973, this widely recognized journal is devoted to space law and the legal problems arising out of human activities in outer space.”
“First developed in 1968 to showcase the work of Queen’s University’s law students, theQueen’s Law Journal has since become one of the most respected legal publications in Canada and an important scholarly platform for legal commentary. Editors take an interdisciplinary approach that welcomes a diversity of perspectives for publication, the journal is also rigorously refereed. “
New issues of the following journals are now available through WestlawNext Canada. If you would like to read any of these articles, or if you are interested in any other online journals we offer, please contact us for assistance at email@example.com.
