We have a winner! Karen Selden's entry OBS/TS FROG (Funding Research Opportunities Grant) was selected. Please consider what you could do with a technical services research grant - no amount is too small and applications are considered on a rolling basis. More information and an application are available here!

The Online Bibliographic Services Special Interest Section (OBS-SIS) of the American Association of Law Libraries focuses on all aspects of the various national and local bibliographic utilities. These include public access to bibliographic data online, acquisitions sub-systems, mail message systems, and integration of circulation systems with the online bibliographic data.

This Special Interest Section:

  • Facilitates the exchange of information on the choice and installation of local and national online bibliographic systems
  • Provides opportunities for its members to share ideas for more effective and efficient use of their systems
  • Monitors the products and services of the online systems
  • Communicates concerns of law libraries to the systems and networks
