Great Library Service Update

In response to the Ontario government’s stay-at-home order, starting tomorrow, Thursday, January 14, 2021, Great Library staff will no longer be working on site a few days per week. This means that for the time being, we will not have access to our print collection.

Library staff are however continuing to work remotely providing research assistance and document delivery from the library’s electronic resources. Please continue to email us at refstaff@lso.ca.

We will keep you informed when the situation changes, and will post updates here on the blog as well as on our Twitter account – @greatlibrary.

Thank you, and stay safe!

Effective Tuesday, March 24, 2020, the Great Library is starting back up its document delivery service to Law Society of Ontario licensees.

  • Requests will be filled from electronic sources only. While the library remains closed, we’re unable to provide scans from materials in our print collection.
  • Please use the document delivery form to make your request. If you do not have access to a web browser, you can email refstaff@lso.ca with your request.
  • Requests will only be fulfilled by email. We do not have the ability to fax, mail, or have requests picked up.
