Use the AND connector (represented by an AND, &, or a space), to retrieve text containing two or more search terms in the same section.
OR is used to require query terms on either side of the OR to be in a document.
%, BUTNOT Connector:
% is used to quantify what cannot be in the document. The term to the right of the % is the term that cannot be in the content.
Phrase Searches (" "): A phrase search contains one or more terms within quotes. This requires all of the terms to be found next to each other.
Numerical connectors require search terms to appear within a specified number of terms of each other.
To specify term order with numerical connectors, use the +n connecter (where n is a number); the +n connector requires that the first term precede the second term by no more than the specified number of terms.
Precedence of Search Connectors
The following is the order in which ProView will evaluate the search connectors with the terms in your query:
OR, +n, /n, &, %, [SPACE]
There is a scrollable view and page by page presentation of your ProView eBooks. In Scrollable view, the easiest way to reach the content you are looking for is to find the section via the heading in the TOC rather than by the page on which it is contained in the book.
eReference (eLooseleaf) titles are only viewable in Scrollable mode and do not contain page numbering, so the only way to reach specific content is via the table of contents links.
Under ‘Library’ you will see the full library of titles to which you are subscribed. This includes electronic versions of bound books (for example: Martin’s Criminal Code) and looseleaf titles (for example: Klar, Remedies in Tort). Clicking on the “eReference” button will filter the library so that it only displays the looseleaf titles. You can find a user guide for Proview eReference titles here.
Subscribers to any eReference title in print are automatically entitled to free ProView access to that title. However, if a customer cancels their subscription to the print title, the electronic version on ProView will be removed from their library. On the other hand, purchasers of a bound book will pay a premium if they also want to have access to the eBook version. eBooks will always remain in the customer’s ProView library once purchased. No ongoing subscription is required.
Yes IP Authentication is available for eReference (eLooseleaf) titles only. If a firm chooses to provide seamless IP access then no login will be required, however some of the personalized features of ProView such as Notes & Annotations, Bookmarking, and Highlights, will not be available because those features must be tied to a OnePass account.
If a member of the firm wants to take advantage of these features then they will be moved to IP Personalization (IPP) in which case they will have to sign out of IP Authentication and log in with their OnePass user ID.
The additional search results from ProView will be part of the broader WestlawNext Canada Federated Search result list, so any search run on Westlaw will continue to have the same suggested notional chargeback for the search. However, once you click through to ProView, there are no notional charges assigned to ProView usage. As is the case today, activity within ProView will not show up in the Reporting System so there will be no suggested chargeback value for activity within ProView.
