Canadian Law Journals and Reviews Online

New Law Library Blog: Legal Sourcery

As I perused the latest additions on, I came across a new law library blog out of the Law Society of Saskatchewan called Legal Sourcery. (clever name!)

Published by library staff at the LSS, the author bio page notes Reché McKeague as the site's feature blogger; along with the site's team of staff bloggers: Ken Fox, Melanie Hodges Neufeld, Alan Kilpatrick, Kelly Laycock and Sarah Roussel-Lewis.

This blog has been updated frequently and has a nice mix of resources and commentary; and judging by its first few months of operation, looks to be a nice addition for those of us who follow law library blogs.

It's also nice to see this effort gain some traction with their target audience of Saskatchewan lawyers. They recently surpassed 10K page views in just a few months of operation, so the word must be getting out...

Congratulations to the crew over at Legal Sourcery. Please keep up the good work!
