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.
