Go ahead, save a forest

I print a lot of pages from various sites and find that PrintFriendly is something I can't do without. It formats web pages so that the result is clean - removes ads and navigation while saving you paper and ink. There are extensions available for Chrome, Firefox, Edge; buttons for IE, Safari, Android; and an app for your iPad and iPhone. With PrintFriendly you can print the web page or save it as a pdf all the while knowing you've done something good for the environment.

OCLA Web App

If you travel through the province, OCLA has created a one stop shop to get the information you need before going to the courthouse.

The Ontario Courthouse Libraries Association (OCLA) rolled out their new mobile-device-friendly site on November 30, 2018. The new website is designed to be a lawyer-centric portal to the County and District Law Libraries in the province. We've packaged the individual law library profiles into one convenient site, offering an easy-to-digest overview of the information, and services being offered. Some of the features include:

•Highly visible quick link icons to contact information, location-based mapping, weather, and Association websites.
•Quick catalogue access to diverse resources, directly from the home page.
•A persistent header with a drop-down menu for easy navigation by Association or city.
•Find information about hours, access, electronic resources, parking, robing rooms, lounge facilities, value added extras, and more.
