Courthouse Libraries BC is proud to introduce the Reading Room, our online library that BC lawyers and articling students can access at no cost. Now, for the first time, you can view e-books, journals, case reporters and more from your home or office, simply by visiting our website.

Currently, Members of the Law Society of BC have access to three subscription databases: Irwin Law E-Library, rangefindr and Hein Online. These products are also available on the library computers, so the public may access them when the library is open.
