The Bodleian Law Library has Canadian law printed resources on Floor 2 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 This designates older material - often superseded editions.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.
