This month's website is:

National inventory of the collateral consequences of conviction
https://uhlaw.lib.hawaii.edu/vwebv/holdingsInfo?bibId=3947980

Persons convicted of crime are subject to a wide variety of legal and regulatory sanctions and restrictions in addition to the sentence imposed by the court. These so-called "collateral consequences" of conviction have been promulgated with little coordination in disparate sections of state and federal codes, which makes it difficult for anyone to identify all of the penalties and disabilities that are triggered by conviction of a particular offense. Through the National Inventory, each jurisdiction's collateral consequences will be made accessible to the public through a website that can be searched and sorted by categories and keywords."--from the Web site.


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.
