Selected Web Sites for Federal Law Librarians

Updated August 1997

The following document was used at several FEDLINK programs on Web sites for law librarians. It is posted here in the hopes that it will be useful to those who were not able to attend these programs, and as a resource for the wider federal library community.

These were introductory programs for law librarians who were new to Internet and the World Wide Web. The items listed were discussed as examples of the types of Web resources available to law librarians, but this was not meant to be a complete or exhaustive guide. (Inclusion/exclusion from the list implies no endorsement or criticism of any source by FLICC, FEDLINK, or LC).

Comments or questions about this list can be directed to FEDLINK Network Operations at the address above, or by e-mail to: fliccfno@loc.gov.
