Catherine Best's Redesign of Best Guide to Canadian Legal Research

In the past few days, Slaw.ca has had two posts about the redesign of the Best Guide to Canadian Legal Research, a website created and maintained over the past 15 years by Vancouver-based Catherine Best.

On June 6, 2013, Steven Matthews wrote in the post Newly Redesigned: Best Guide to Canadian Legal Research that the site has been "one of the most respected (and fluid) resources for introducing legal research here in Canada".

Today, Shaunna Mireau wrote in her post entitled Comparing Sources how the Edmonton Law Libraries Association has used content from the Best Guide in its annual Head Start legal research training program. She adds: "I appreciate the time and effort that Catherine has put into sharing the evaluation criteria for research tools, discussing the search interfaces, comparing the case law and legislation content, and the citators. I also appreciate the search syntax comparisons" [for Quicklaw, Westlaw, CanLII, HeinOnline, Irwin eBrary, BAILII, AUSTLII, etc.].
