Important Evaluation of Clicklaw's Wikibooks: Courthouse Libraries BC needs your help!

Courthouse Libraries BC has just started an evaluation of its ever-expanding collection of wikibooks, maintained under CLBC's Clicklaw banner, and they need your input. Help CLBC out by visiting its Clicklaw Wikibooks page and checking out a title. A box will pop up asking to you to take a short survey, and the survey will load into that box when you're done with the wikibook.

Wikibooks are websites built on the open-source MediaWiki platform that powers Wikipedia. The platform is great for websites that offer large amounts of information, and is built to allow authors to quickly add and edit pages and allow users to search content quickly.

Clicklaw Wikibooks presently offers wikibooks on subjects including tenants' rights, consumers' rights, human trafficking, taxes, wills, being an executor, family violence and child protection. It also hosts my own wikibook, JP Boyd on Family Law, which is available in print at public and courthouse libraries throughout the province as well.

Please browse through a wikibook and give CLBC your feedback. This will help CLBC improve the free legal education material it provides and benefit all British Columbians.
  • Visit the Clicklaw Blog for more information about the evaluation.
Participants who complete the survey can be entered into a monthly draw to win a $100 prepaid Visa gift card.

The survey for the evaluation of most wikibooks will run until mid-June. The survey for the evaluation of JP Boyd on Family Law will run until mid-July.
