LawMatters Grants Overview


It’s that time of year again! Many of you will already be familiar with this, but for any newcomers to the LawMatters program (welcome!) or returning participants (welcome back!), I thought it might be worthwhile to provide an overview of the grants process.

A Grant Agreement Letter is emailed to the chief librarians/directors of all the participating libraries in BC along with the following:

Q&A
Selection Guidelines
Law Books for Libraries (LBL) for 2016

All documents except for the Grant Agreement Letter are available online to view/download at Lawmatters website.

The Process:


1) Agreement Letter
  • Sign & Send us a copy
  • Keep a copy for your records
2) Receive your grant
  • We send you a cheque for the amount specified in your agreement letter
3) Collect & Consult
  • Use LBL 2016 as your guide to purchasing materials with the grant
  • See something not on the list? Check our Guidelines and contact the Program Coordinator before purchasing
4) Report
  • Let us know how you spent your grant
  • Send us a report in by September 5 with the titles you purchased and for which of your locations (if applicable)
Please let me know if you prefer to have a print copy of the Grant Agreement Letter sent to you by mail. Send me an email smcleod@courthouselibrary.ca or give me a call 604-660-9204 if you have further questions.
