The research record kept by some electronic research tools provides a useful summary of some of your research steps. For example, the research history on WestlawNext Canada keeps track of the search queries and documents viewed for a full year, and allows the user to search within the documents viewed during that year, and to filter them by client ID and other categories. In addition, you can set the preferences in WestlawNext Canada to email you a copy of your research history for each search session, so that it can be kept in the client file as a record of your research. There is a search history function in Quicklaw, but it contains less information and is available for a short period.
