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.

http://guides.lib.ua.edu/c.php?g=39525&p=252576

The University of Alabama Libraries has compiled this diverse and delightful list of podcasts, blogs, and Wikis that will be of interest to librarians and library science students. This resource list contains professional resources – including a Wiki that highlights best practices in the field and links to Twitter feeds that librarians may want to follow to keep abreast of developments in the library world. Many podcasts and blogs featured here – such as Adventures in Library Instruction and the official podcast of the Young Adult Library Service Association – provide specialized information and advice for specific members of the library profession. On the lighter side, the University of Alabama Libraries also highlights a number of personal and group blogs that provide humor and wry commentary about the library world.

Electronic Book Review
http://electronicbookreview.com

Founded in 1995, Electronic Book Review (ebr) is a peer-reviewed journal dedicated to “literary studies, broadly defined.” Unlike other periodicals, ebr is continually updated through a series of themed threads. Each thread is edited by a content expert; current editors include scholars of cinematic arts, English, and mass communications. Thread topics include Technocapitalism (works that consider technology as a form of capital); Image + Narrative (discussions about how technology and images change the nature of narrative); and Critical Ecologies (explorations of “convergences among natural and constructed ecosystems”). Within each thread, readers will find interviews, critical essays and reviews of novels, nonfiction works, and art. Recently reviewed works include Mark Greif’s intellectual history The Age of the Crisis of Man; Pete Townshend’s autobiography Who I Am and German studies scholar James McFarland’s book Constellation: Friedrich Nietzsche and Walter Benjamin in the Now-Time of History.

U.S. Census Bureau: Data Visualization Gallery
https://www.census.gov/dataviz

The U.S. Census Bureau works diligently to “portray historical changes in the growth and redistribution of the U.S. population.” More recently, they have turned to graphics and visualizations to help accomplish this feat. On this website, readers will find the Census Bureau’s latest efforts to use technology to visualize the multi-faceted and ever changing characteristics of the U.S. population. There are currently over 40 visualizations in the gallery that chart changes in demographics, housing, employment, and other topical areas. For instance, readers may view the historical acquisition of new territory as charted by evolving boundary lines, or explore the relationship between college majors and occupations. Of course, the site also offers many helpful links to other components of the U.S. Census Bureau’s website that are worth further exploration.

Wikiverse: A Galactic Re-Imagining of Wikipedia

September 24, 2016

Wikiverse: A Galactic Re-Imagining of Wikipedia
http://wikiverse.io

Wikiverse is a new tool that provides users with a whole new way to browse Wikipedia and explore topics of interest. Created by data visualization engineer, Owen Cornec, Wikiverse allows visitors to visualize and explore links between Wikipedia subjects. The size of the Wikiverse can be controlled by the user, allowing users to explore either one, two, or five percent of Wikipedia. From here, users can explore any topic and see how this topic is linked to others. A list of related topics will appear on the right hand side of the site, or visitors can view the topic as a star in a three-dimensional galaxy. Related topics appear close by and are arranged into clusters, such as Art, Biology, or Geography. As visitors click on stars, full definitions and additional links appear on the left-hand side of the screen. Wikiverse provides a riveting experience, and highlights the interconnections between topics that, at first blush, seem entirely unrelated. This will be added to Reference Resources Subject Tracer™.
