  • No. Online-only customers who cancel will not have access to any archival data. eLooseleafs on Proview work best together in the print and online format, however online-only subscriptions are available. Many of our Customers continue to use both formats and enjoyed the flexibility and convenience of having access to both formats.

  • No.  ProView eLooseleaf free trials are not available.

  • Subscribers to online access who wish to continue with their print subscriptions will continue to receive their print releases according to the usual practice. They will be notified by email notification. In addition, a monthly email will be distributed to all eLooseleafs subscribers, which will contain a link that includes electronic versions of all of the most recent Publisher’s Notes for each publication.

  • Topical Texts and Annotations on Westlaw and eLooseleafs on ProView differ in platform and in the ways in which they are purchased.  Topical Texts and Annotations are accessed on the Westlaw platform alongside all other Westlaw content, and eLooseleafs on ProView are accessed on ProView along side all other ProView content.  The functionality of the respective platforms applies to the content and ProView content will continue to appear in federated search results on Westlaw.   The eLooseleaf titles on ProView can be purchased individually.  The concept is that of a “virtual” library where subscribers can pick and choose the titles they need. Topical Texts and Annotations must be purchased as Topical Collections. The publication content is consistent between Westlaw and ProView.

  • Yes. Links to full text case law are now included and enabled for most cases cited in eLooseleafs commentary. This functionality enables eLooseleaf users to link out to full text cases in Westlaw Canada or Taxnet Pro from case citation links included in the eLooseleaf titles. The link out requires users to have an existing Westlaw Canada or Taxnet Pro subscription and an active session opened in either Westlaw Canada or Taxnet Pro.

  • No. This is not possible with eLooseleafs. A search of all titles can only be done once a user is logged in and only to those titles subscribed to.

  • Yes, customers may search across their entire library of subscribed titles from the library view of the ProView platform.

  • Yes, Users will be able to access any eLooseleaf title from their firm or organization’s intranet. Users with IP address authentication will not be able to use the personalized features such as notes, annotations, highlighting, or bookmarking. However, it does allow for the administrative managers to very quickly allow for Proview access to their entire organization without having to set up individual OnePass access for every member of the firm.

  • A feature called IP Personalization will allow individual users in firms and organizations with IP address authentication to make use of the personalized features such as notes and highlights. This option will be the default setting for IPAA customers (see also next question). Each time a user logs in a window will open allowing that user to create a personal account on the fly and obtain individual OnePass access to those eLooseleaf titles to which their firm subscribes. (This option can be disabled at the firm level if desired, disabling the personalization feature). The individual OnePass access is necessary to access the personalized features.

  • Individual IP Personalization users will be able to use all of the features of the Proview platform including the personalized functions such as the Notes and Annotations, highlighting, and bookmarking. Without IP Personalization, users in the organization will be unable to make use of these personalized features. The IPP window that appears enables users to choose whether to enter the personalized environment or not at an individual level, relieving the administrative managers of this task. Each user will then be responsible for logging in using their OnePass credentials.

  • Yes, we can disable the IP Personalization option at the request of IPAA customers so that this option is not visible or accessible to their end-users.

  • We offer print “Quick Reference Guides” together with “how to” and other training videos, live training sessions via webex, etc., through the CPD Centre. These live training sessions have been accredited by the Law Society of Ontario and will count towards the user’s mandatory CPD hours under the Ethics/Professionalism requirement.

  • Online access to eLooseleafs on ProView is included with a print subscription at the subscribing location. There is no additional cost for users of eLooseleafs on ProView. Customers will continue to be charged for each new release uploaded to the eLooseleaf.

  • Looseleaf titles, whether in print or electronically (i.e. as eLooseleafs, WLNC, etc.) should be cited to chapter and section number/heading, and not to page or paragraph numbers. The reason for this is that pages frequently change from release to release, and in fact, page and paragraph numbers have never been an appropriate way of citing our looseleaf titles, even in print. This remains the case now that they are available electronically.
