Legal Websites of the Month Archive
As a service to OBS-SIS members, a MARC record of a legal website
is distributed on the OBS-SIS discussion list each month. We encourage
you to try it out and see if your library might want to include
it in your online catalog. Cataloging is provided by the University
of Colorado Law Library.
The links below each site name will connect you to the University
of Colorado's online system. From the record you can view the website
itself by following the links, or view the MARC tagging format by
selecting the MARC Display button at the top of the screen. Cataloging
questions should be addressed to Yumin Jiang.
Thanks to Karen Selden and OCLC, we can now keep up on cataloging the AALL OBS-SIS Legal Websites of the Month.
Here is a solution to minimize your workload and add those records in an economical and streamlined manner. Libraries can
logon to the WorldCat Collection Sets order form to place their order for AALL OBS-SIS Legal Websites of the Month MARC records.
There are several processing options available on the order form. If libraries already have some of these records and have set their
holdings in WorldCat, OCLC has an option to output only the records that do not already have their institution symbol set in WorldCat.
If libraries want to receive new records that are added each month, they should select the standing order option on the order form.
Here is the link to the list of sets:
