We are delighted to announce that Andy Froese is the winner of this year's Peter Bark Bursary. Andy will be using the bursary to attend the SLA Conference in Washington DC in June 2009.
The Peter Bark Professional Development Bursary was established by VALL to commemorate Peter Bark and his contribution to VALL and law librarianship. The Bursary assists VALL members demonstrating financial need in attending meetings of the Canadian Association of Law Librarians or other law library associations, continuing education workshops or other professional development.
CanLII will be doing a presentation in Vancouver to demonstrate some of the new features on the site.Â In particularÂ they will show SATAL, the new point-in-time searching capability for statutes and the availability of the BC statutes on the site.
The presentation will take place on Monday April 20 at 5:30pm at the Law Society of British Columbia.Â For more information, see http://www.canlii.org/en/blog/index.php?/archives/32-CanLII-invites-you-to-a-user-meeting-in-Vancouver.html
