CanLII subject query RSS feeds and other search improvements

Back in January I wrote a Tip at the (then) newly launched Slaw Tips blog titled Monitoring a case law subject with CanLII. There were a lot of great comments on the tip. I also heard that CanLII was working on a built in solution to subject Query RSS feeds.

I am extremely pleased to pass on the news that CanLII has made some improvements to their search tools this week and Subject Query RSS feeds is one of them.

Way to go CanLII. Hat tip to Steve Matthews and Susannah Tredwell for tweeting this.

Along with faster results rendering CanLII has also added the ability to more specifically target your hit results based on the query.

Thank you to CanLII for the innovations and for the fabulous example of what a well organized and reasonably funded free access to the law movement can do in 10 short years.

CALL Conference coming up soon

The Canadian Association of Law Libraries Conference is quickly approaching. The Conference is in Calgary this year and the Conference Planning Committee, of which I am a member, has been working diligently to make sure that attendees will have a enjoyable education and networking experience.

The conference website is a worthy visit for anyone interested in law libraries, law librarianship, or legal information generally. Special thanks to all those who have agreed to sponsor the conference.

See you in Calgary May 15 to 18th, 2011

For Fielders: all library staff will be attending this event so library service will be limited.
