Guide to Canadian Law Resources at the Bodleian Law Library
This guide goes into greater detail on the resources available on Canadian Law at the Bodleian Law Library.
Canadian law quick start
The Bodleian Law Library has Canadian law printed resources on the Reading Room floor of the library. The shelfmarks begin with Cw. Can. and are arranged by the following categories:
Cw. Can. 5-94 - Federal Legislation
Cw. Can. 100 - Law Reports : federal
Cw. Can. 300 - Law Journals
Cw. Can. 510 - Monographs
Cw. Can. 610 - Quebec Monographs
Cw. Can. Alb, etc. - Separate Sections for provincial legislation and law report series
The Cw. in front of the Cw. Can. shelfmarks refers to the Commonwealth of Nations of which Canada is a member. For more information about the Commonwealth of Nations, see the Commonwealth Secretariat website.
In the library catalogue some materials have "(sec coll)" after the shelfmark, e.g. Cw Can. 510 O81a2 (sec coll). This designates older material - often superseded editions. These can be found on the Official Papers floor in the basement.
Members of Oxford University can also use the following electronic databases; the last one on the list is freely available online for anyone with internet access.
If you are off campus, you can access the e-resources remotely by signing into OXLIP+ using your Oxford Single Sign On details.
