Great Library Reopening!

In accordance with the lifting of provincial Public Health measures, the library will be reopening to our members as of Wednesday, February 16, 2022.

Our hours are Monday to Friday from 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. The doors will be open and no you will no longer need to call for access. 

Attendees will be asked to check in at the front desk to provide their name and contact information for contact tracing.

Anyone using the library will still be required to wear masks when in shared workspaces. We’re looking forward to welcoming more of you back soon.

New Printing and Photocopying Procedure

Library users will now need to create a Papercut account to use printing and copying services at the library.

To start, email us at library@lawsociety.mb.ca for the registration link and create an account by clicking on “Register as a New User.”

Select a username and password. You will need to enter this on the Xerox machine when copying and scanning, or on the computer when sending a job to the printer.

Once you have created your account, you can login and add credit. You can pay with a PayPal account, credit card, or debit card.

Funds will automatically be deducted from your account when you print or photocopy.

If you need any help setting up an account, or you have any questions please contact the library.

Thomson Reuters Accounting Issues

Last fall Thomson Reuters migrated their accounting platform to one being used by their other international offices. Since then, customers have been having serious problems ensuring invoices are accurate and they have received what they’ve ordered.

The Vendor Liaison Committee of the Canadian Association of Law Libraries has been meeting with senior management at Thomson Reuters to ensure these concerns are addressed and fixed. If you are not a member of CALL/ACBD and are having difficulties resolving your issues, please contact me at ksawatzky@lawsociety.mb.ca and I will add your concerns to ours.

We are hopeful this will be resolved soon.
