Law Library Access Will Continue to be by Appointment Only

In accordance with the ongoing recommendations of the Chief Medical Officer with respect to physical distancing, the Law Library can only safely accommodate a maximum of four persons at one time.

Therefore, until further notice, the Law Library will continue to be accessible to members of the Law Society by appointment only. Walk-ins are not permitted and afterhours access remains suspended. All members of the Law Society can access our contactless services (borrowing, text recommendations, staff research on your behalf) at any time during open hours.

The public, including self-represented litigants, remain unable to access the Law Library.

On-site appointments for Law Society members are subject to the following restrictions:

  • Access to the library stacks on the first floor and all of the second floor continues to be prohibited; we ask that you inform us of the resources you wish to be pulled prior to arrival;
  • In accordance with the mandatory vaccination policy noted above, effective September 7th, 2021, all members seeking an in-person appointment must show proof of vaccination to the Law Librarian (or designate) upon arrival. The Law Library will continue to provide our remote research and reference services, including scanning, to persons who cannot attend the building or otherwise wish to avail of that service;
  • Appointments must be pre-booked;
  • Appointments are scheduled for a maximum of 50-minutes, beginning on the hour from 9 a.m. to 12 p.m. and from 2 p.m. to 4 p.m
  • Masks must be worn at all times while present in the Law Library.

An update with respect to Law Library access will be provided by October 1st, 2021.
