This article studies pamphlet collection as a source of legal information in Canada. One of the most simplest and most enduring sources for information about legal aspects, has been the pamphlet, produced by the organizations that provide information to the public. A collection of such pamphlets, consisting of almost 6,000 eclectic titles, has recently made its way into the University of Alberta, Alberta, Archives from the Legal Studies Program at the Faculty of Extension. Now librarians, researchers and legal professionals can access this treasure trove of materials, giving a unique historical perspective on the realm of public legal education
