I hadn’t noticed a great piece on the UVic Law School Library’s efforts to make legal information available in the North and to provide legal resources to students and lawyers from Nunavut. It’s a fascinating mélange of traditional, electronic and culture-specific materials, delivered under difficult circumstances.
The article entitled Providing Library Services to Canada’s First Arctic Law School by Emily Yearwood-Lee, talks about how a law librarian, Serena Ableson set up a law library dedicated to the needs of Nunavut.
There is also a piece by Ms. Ableson in the International Journal Of Legal Information
Bringing Legal Education to the Canadian Arctic: the Development of the Akitsiraq Law School and the Challenges for Providing Library Services to a Non-traditional Law School. I hope that someone can find an electronic version – I can’t.
