We're surveying BC lawyers

Hi all.

CLBC is adapting services, collection resources, products and overall methods to meet the evolving needs of lawyers throughout BC. To that end, we're running a survey of BC lawyers and hope you can help us get the word out to your lawyers by sending on the information below.

To all BC Lawyers: We’ll listen to your ideas, comments or gripes about practice needs, the changes sweeping the profession or Courthouse Libraries BC's services. A few minutes with this survey will help us shape the Courthouse Libraries BC of tomorrow and identify new products, services and approaches to address your needs.

Information you share will be anonymous, and we will report out on the big picture findings of the survey after it closes (November 25, 2016). Those who complete the survey will be given the chance to enter a draw for one of five $100 gift cards to Chapters/Indigo.

Be part of the conversation. Please take our survey today.

For more information, you can read a message from our CEO, Johanne Blenkin.

Thank you.

Is anyone missing the CLE "Introducing Evidence at Trial"?

We found the 2013 CLE text Introducing Evidence at Trial: A BC Handbook in our book drop on December 19th, but it's not our copy.

Is anyone missing it?

There are no stamps in the book, but it does have a call number on the spine, KN390 I57 2013.  There is a card pocket in the back, complete with card, that was last filled out on September 5th by JRB.

If it's yours, let us know!  604-660-2841. If we don't hear anything by February 2, 2015, we're going to adopt it into our collection.

 Thanks!
