Anyone who has ever conducted archival research knows that the field includes a variety of specific vocabulary terms, including words relating to material preservation, copyright law, and more. Fortunately, the Society of American Archivists (SAA) has created this free, extensive glossary of archival and records terminology. On this website, visitors can browse hundreds of terms alphabetically or conduct a text search for unfamiliar terms. The glossary, over 400 pages in total, is also available as a free PDF download. The guide includes a helpful Preface, authored by archivist Robert Pearce-Morris, that outlines how archival vocabulary has shifted over time. In addition, those interested in learning new archival terms one week at a time can sign up for a free Word of the Week email. This will be added to Reference Resources Subject Tracer™.

The Guide to Law Online

January 14, 2017

The Guide to Law Online
http://www.loc.gov/law/help/guide.php

The Guide to Law Online, prepared by the Law Library of Congress Public Services Division, is an annotated guide to sources of information on government and law available online. It includes selected links to useful and reliable sites for legal information. The Guide to Law Online is an annotated compendium of Internet links; a portal of Internet sources of interest to legal researchers. Although the Guide is selective, inclusion of a site by no means constitutes endorsement by the Law Library of Congress. In compiling this list, emphasis wherever possible has been on sites offering the full texts of laws, regulations, and court decisions, along with commentary from lawyers writing primarily for other lawyers. Materials related to law and government that were written by or for lay persons also have been included, as have government sites that provide even quite general information about themselves or their agencies. Every direct source listed here was successfully tested before being added to the list. Users, however, should be aware that changes of Internet addresses and file names are frequent, and even sites that usually function well do not always do so. Thus a successful connection may sometimes require several attempts. If such an attempt to access a file indicates an error, the information can sometimes still be accessed by truncating the URL address to access a directory at the site.
