New Legal Encyclopedia at Upcoming Quebec Librarian Conference

The program for the 2006 conference of the Corporation des bibliothécaires professionnels du Québec is available online.

The event will take place in Laval, a Montreal suburb, May 17th-19th.

Major topics include:
  • Copyright reform
  • Intergenerational dynamics in the workplace
  • New library architecture and design
  • Evolution of the corporate library into a "knowledge support" centre
  • Virtual libraries
  • Collaborative projects

One of the collaborative projects that will be presented by Pierre Mackay, professor at UQAM (Université du Québec à Montréal), is JurisPedia, an international wiki-type multilingual legal encyclopedia being created by UQAM and the universities of Groningen, Montpellier, Saarland, Can Tho (Vietnam). Think of it as the international, less American, cousin of the Wex encyclopedia project run out of Cornell University.
