CAIJ, the Centre d'accès à l'information juridique (the network of law libraries associated with the Québec Bar Association), has signed resource sharing agreements with 7 major law firms in Québec that will make their legal commentary publications freely available on the CAIJ website as of June.

The firms in question are:
  • Borden Ladner Gervais,
  • Dentons,
  • Fasken Martineau,
  • Lavery,
  • Miller Thomson,
  • Norton Rose Fullbright,
  • Stikeman Elliott. 
Their guides, bulletins and commentary articles will be added to a collection that already includes full-text commentary and textbooks including the Développements récents (annual reviews of areas of law), the Collection de droit (Bar School materials), proceedings of the annual Quebec Bar Association congresses and a growing number of treatises from publisher Wilson & Lafleur.

Earlier Library Boy posts about CAIJ include:
  • RSS Feeds for Reference Questions Handled by Quebec Law Libraries (December 22, 2008): "... it is possible to subscribe to RSS feeds from CAIJ ... There are RSS feeds for new library acquisitions, for legislative updates, and for news by topic. The most interesting RSS feed for me is the one for new reference questions added to the JuriBistro Topo collection."
  • Free Access to Quebec Bar Association Materials On CAIJ (January 31, 2009): "Continuing education materials from the Quebec Bar Association have been available for free since the fall of 2008 on the website of CAIJ. This includes: Bar School texts; annual conference papers; the Développements récents collection (recent developments in specific areas of law)"
  • Quebec Legal Info Service CAIJ Launches New Website (November 10, 2011): "CAIJ, the Centre d'accès à l'information juridique (the network of law libraries associated with the Québec Bar Association), has a revamped website with many new research features: the UNIK search engine (...) the eDoctrine collection of free full-text commentary and textbooks (...) the eLOIS collection of annotated laws (...) "
  • Canadian Association of Law Libraries 2012 Conference - Award for Excellence in Legal Publishing (May 7, 2012): "The 2012 Hugh Lawford Award for Excellence in Legal Publishing was announced today at the annual conference of the Canadian Association of Law Libraries in Toronto. The Award goes to JuriBistro UNIK, the global search engine on the website of CAIJ, the network of courthouse libraries in Quebec."
  • Canadian Association of Law Libraries 2013 Conference - Redesigning Products and Processes (May 9, 2013): "One of the big themes running through many of the workshops at this week’s CALL conference in Montreal was redesign of products, platforms and processes. The conference ended yesterday. The Monday session entitled “Please Don't Make Me Think: User Testing a Faceted Search Engine” was about how the Centre d’accès à l’information juridique (CAIJ), Quebec’s Courthouse library Network, conducted user testing sessions to validate the ergonomic and design aspects of many of its tools, including its new faceted search engine JuriBistro UNIK.
