In recent years, governments around the world have enhanced their websites in order to improve access to legislative information. Innovative features allow constituents and researchers to locate and utilize detailed information on laws in various ways. These include tracking tools and alerts, apps, bulk data/API, search technology, and multimedia. Presenters from the Law Library of Congress will show examples of these features in action and highlight trends in the use of evolving technology for legislative research. Audience feedback will be sought on their favorite tools and enhancements, which will be shared with Library of Congress website developers.
