Brexit is a commonly used term for the United Kingdom's planned withdrawal from the European Union. Brexit is an abbreviation for "British exit," referring to the 2016 referendum vote to leave the UK by April 2019. Issues in the United Kingdom European membership referendum, 2016 are the economic, human and political issues that were discussed during the campaign about the withdrawal of the UK from the EU. The leave campaign argues that a reduction in red tape associated with EU regulations would create more jobs and that small to medium sized companies who trade domestically would be the biggest beneficiaries. In just 264 words in five paragraphs, article 50 of the Lisbon treaty sets out how an EU member can voluntarily leave the European Union. It specifies that a leaver should notify the European council of its intention, negotiate a deal on its withdrawal and establish legal grounds for a future relationship with the EU

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.
