Legal Website of the Month

This month's website is:

Indigenous law portal

Our highly regarded colleague, Dr. Jolande E. Goldberg, and her cohorts at the Library of Congress have successfully mapped constitutions,legal materials, and legislative documents of American Indians as well as Native Hawaiians on the Indigenous Law Portal website. This rich portal website provides a wide array of descriptions of indigenous peoples of the Americas and connects their cultures, history, and lives to the indigenous law classification. The portal would also serve as an extensive study-aid for tribal studies of Americans. We owe Dr. Jolande E.Goldberg, staff at the Library of Congress, and related constituencies a debt of gratitude for their hard work and collaboration to make this great portal website available.

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.

The links below each site name will connect you to the MARC record for the resource.  From the record you can view the website itself by following the links, or view the MARC tagging format by exporting the record and selecting the appropriate MARC format.  Website suggestions and cataloging questions should be addressed to Keiko Okuhara.
