Online Bibliographic Services SIS

Welcome!

The Online Bibliographic Services Special Interest Section (OBS-SIS)  of the American Association of Law Libraries focuses on all aspects of the various national and local bibliographic utilities. These include public access to bibliographic data online, acquisitions sub-systems, mail message systems, and integration of circulation systems with the online bibliographic data.

This Special Interest Section:

  • Facilitates the exchange of information on the choice and installation of local and national online bibliographic systems
  • Provides opportunities for its members to share ideas for more effective and efficient use of their systems
  • Monitors the products and services of the online systems
  • Communicates concerns of law libraries to the systems and networks
