Via Michel-Adrien Sheppard's blog:
The webinar, GALLOP into Government Docs and Legislative Libraries, "is essential for anyone working with government publications, and will also be relevant for school, public, academic, and special librarians searching for government publications. It will address collaborative efforts to preserve and make available electronic government publications in Canada. Reference librarians will learn how to use this reliable source of Canadian content. Library school students may find value in this session regarding ways libraries are cooperating to navigate the ongoing shift from paper to electronic resources and manage print collections economically."

From Louis Mirando, Chief Law Librarian, Osgoode Hall Law School:
The Osgoode Hall Law School Library is pleased to announce the official launch of the Osgoode Digital Commons (http://digitalcommons.osgoode.yorku.ca/), the Osgoode Hall Law School's official, open-access institutional repository. The launch was part of the Osgoode Research Celebration held held today as the first official event of the Osgoode @ 125 celebrations to mark the School's 125th anniversary.
With the launch of its Digital Commons, Osgoode has become the first law school in Canada to provide free online access to its legal scholarship. The Osgoode Digital Commons is part of the Library's and the law school’s commitment to better preserve, organize and disseminate legal research and legal information — including full-text (PDF) copies of scholarly articles published by Osgoode faculty, journals published by the School, graduate theses, digitization projects undertaken by the Library, a gallery of books published by Osgoode faculty, and an archive of videos produced by the School. And this is just the start of an ongoing project to build a comprehensive archive of Osgoode research, all full-text and open-access.
Please take at a look at Osgoode Digital Commons and let us know what you think.
