Search issues with the University of Calgary’s “Our Future, Our Past” site

ELLA members,

Please note that searching the U of C’s ‘Our Future, Our Past’ site (at least the AB Laws Collection) is currently not possible.  The software that this collection is running is out of date and is failing. They are working on a project to migrate the content to a more modern platform, and will keep us posted as this project progresses.

In the meantime, you can still browse the collection.

Thank you to Sandi Madvid for the heads up!

Thank you.
