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.

Thanks to 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.
