UPDATES ON LIRN


Ontario's Courthouse Law Libraries, or Practice Resource Centers, remain a fundamental issue of interest for FOLA and its members.  The preservation, improvement and sustainability of the system has been at the forefront of FOLA since before the inception of LibraryCo.  


Our Issues section on Ontario Courthouse Law Libraries is intended as a resource for those looking to learn more about the ongoing debate and keep track of the latest developments.
