RSS Feeds for Reference Questions Handled by Quebec Law Libraries

I found out today that it is possible to subscribe to RSS feeds from CAIJ (the Centre d'accès à l'information juridique or Legal Information Access Centre, a library network associated with the Quebec Bar Association). The feeds were launched in November.

All the material is in French.

The CAIJ network is composed of a few dozen courthouse libraries, regional libraries, and local service points throughout the province of Quebec.

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. Launched 2 years ago, JuriBistro Topo is a massive knowledgebase containing thousands of legal research questions along with their answers based on the queries local CAIJ outlets receive annually from lawyers across Quebec.

A typical answer will include links or references to the appropriate legislation or regulations, jurisprudence, textbooks and periodical articles, and may provide links to related JuriBistro Topo topics.
