About this Item

Title

  • Foreign Legal Gazettes Database

Summary

  • Staff of the Law Library of Congress demonstrate how to use its new Foreign Legal Gazettes Database to explore the Law Library's vast collection of foreign legal gazettes. The Law Library has been collecting foreign legal gazettes since the mid-19th century and is one of the last libraries to systematically acquire these titles from as many jurisdictions as possible. Presently, the Library collects from about 175 national jurisdictions and approximately 100 subnational jurisdictions. The new database allows patrons to search the gazettes by jurisdiction (either via the facets or by clicking on a map), title, content and format. A mobile version has added functionality through sorting capabilities in the columns of the table.
