A Primer to Legislative Research Across the Provinces and Territories

Posted on Updated on

By Alan Kilpatrick

In Spring 2017, the Vancouver Association of Law Libraries (VALL) published a Canada-wide legislative research primer in their association’s quarterly publication, the VALL Review (Spring 2017, Volume 29, No. 2).

Legislative research is a major component of law librarian’s labour.  Publication of the primer is timely and apt.  It will be well used by legal information professionals.  I would like to commend VALL for its leadership in developing this excellent resource.

A Primer to Legislative Research Across the Provinces and Territories was collaboratively developed by some amazing law librarians from Canada’s provinces and territories:
