SALI 2021 Virtual Conference Series: Expanding Legal Information Access Through Saskatchewan’s Libraries

July 5, 2021

Saskatchewan’s Libraries

By Alan Kilpatrick, Librarian

On Wednesday, March 31st, the Law Society of Saskatchewan co-hosted a kickoff session for the 2021 Saskatchewan Access to Legal Information (SALI) Project Virtual Conference Series. Nearly one hundred attendees participated in our two-hour kickoff session, Expanding Legal Information Access Through Saskatchewan’s Libraries

The attendees, a mix of librarians, lawyers, and justice stakeholders, actively explored how libraries and information providers can increase legal information access in Saskatchewan. Despite being a critical component in improving access to justice, it is often difficult for members of the public to find and access legal information. 

Why libraries? Saskatchewan’s libraries and their staff are information providers. They are ideally positioned to help the public identify and locate credible legal information.

Our action-oriented kickoff session introduced attendees to SALI and its resources for information providers. Attendees were also divided into small breakout groups to discuss several guided discussion questions.
