It was very exciting to see Daniel Poulin’s Slaw post on the recent Canadian Law Library Review article “Charting Law’s Cosmos: Toward a Crowdsourced Citator” by Mark Phillips, ((2015) 40:2 Can L Libr Rev 13).
To quote Daniel about reading the article, “Immerging oneself in it is like being 40 again: abundant critics of the slow moving incumbents, strong expressions of idealism peppered with some good ideas. Such a reading is good for the heart and the brain.”
Read his SLAW post “Enfin. a Good Paper in the Canadian Law Library Review!” and then don’t forget to read the article itself, you won’t be disappointed.
As he notes the title of his post is deliberately provocative. As editor, I can confirm that we have had many good papers in the CLLR. Rex Shoyama’s recent award winning feature article ((2014) 39:2 Can L LIbr Rev 11) “Citations to Wikipedia in Canadian Law Journal and Law Review Articles” is a case in point. Rex’s article was mentioned in The Wikimedia Research Newsletter and was also discussed in the Cleveland-Marshall College of Law's Library Blog.
