Legal Website of the Month
James A. Garfield Papers
The papers of President James A. Garfield, who was assassinated in the first year of his short presidency, have been digitized and are now available online for the first time from the Library of Congress. The Garfield collection includes approximately 80,000 items, mostly dating from 1850 to 1881. Garfield was shot on July 2, 1881, by Charles Guiteau, a mentally disturbed office seeker convinced that Garfield’s death would provide him with a plum diplomatic post. The president’s health would deteriorate for 80 days due to rampant infection after the shooting, and he died on Sept. 19, 1881.

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.
