Stem Legal congratulates Quickscribe, the Victoria, BC-based provider of print and electronic legislative information, on its relaunch of the British Columbia Legislative Digest.
Discontinued in 2010 by its original publisher, Courthouse Libraries BC, the BC Legislative Digest was a treasured print resource for current legislative monitoring and historical legislative research. With guidance from an advisory group of local law librarians, Quickscribe president Mike Pasta has given new life to the publication by digitizing the data and integrating it within the Quickscribe Online service.
The new BCLD offers a weekly legislative activity Digest, a dynamic “status checker”, and a hyperlinked progress of bills chart that provides an overview of the year’s legislative activity and chapter/bill concordance.
It also offers an email alert service for tracking bills as they progress from first reading though Royal Assent and into law. Subscribers can sign up for customized alerts that include all legislative changes; changes to topical groups of legislation; or changes to selected bills, acts, or regulations. Subscribers may also create multiple email alerts for the benefit of groups or individuals within their organization.
