The Law Library of Congress is a fantastic resource. Really. They have everything. Beyond everything. And they want to help you, dear members of the legal researching public, to know what's in their collection and to learn how to access it.
Matt Braun, one of the ace Law Librarians in the Law Library of Congress, did another Road Show for the Law Library of Congress during the midyear meeting of the American Bar Association, held earlier this month in Dallas. And he did a great job. (Many of you will remember Mr. Braun from the field trip that the Association of American Law Schools Section on Legal Writing, Reasoning, and Research did in January 2012.)
The presentation was great -- those attending got a lot of information about how to use the resources of the Law Library of Congress (even without going to Washington DC). The crowd was standing room only, something you don't always see for a presentation on legal research. And the presentation wasn't even held in the main ABA hotel in Dallas -- you had to walk about 10 minutes to get to the other hotel where this presentation was! This is a committed audience!
Thank you, Law Library of Congress, for continuing to share information about the great resources you offer to researchers throughout the United States (and, indeed, around the world).
