After our recent kudos for the BCCLS website, I’m happy to announce that they are now offering yet another hidden gem from the BC legal market, this time for your RSS reader!
I just received an email from Mandy Ostick, Virtual Library Manager at the BCCLS, announcing that the What’s New blog (& the source for news items on the BCCLS homepage) is now available via RSS. While the feed is becoming less and less of the story here (see also UBC’s recent announcement), what’s more important is the source of this quality content.
Here’s the official description: “What’s New is a current awareness service from the BC Courthouse Library Society that covers notable cases, BC and federal legislation, recent reports, websites of interest to legal researchers, and our own news, including recent library acquisitions.”
And now here’s the unofficial scoop: Librarians & Techs at the BCCLS are on the ball, and spend their time watching what most Lawyers (especially here in BC) wish they had time for. I’ve blogged a number of items in the past that were first found by the gang over at the BCCLS. Simply put, if you’re RSS enabled and paying attention to Canadian law, I think this is a must have.

Anyone looking for a high quality, frequently updated Canadian legal news feed for their Intranet/Portal?
