About Multinational Sources Compared: A Subject and Jurisdiction Index
Multinational Sources Compared: A Subject and Jurisdiction Index by Alena L. Wolotira & Sherry L. Leysen is a finding aid designed to direct researchers to sources that compare multiple jurisdictions on focused subjects. These print and electronic sources contain full-text legislation, statutory citation, or other references to primary law.
This title is based on Professor Jon Schultz’s Statutes Compared: A U.S., Canadian, Multinational Research Guide to Statutes by Subject (2nd ed. 2001) and Multinational Statutes Compared: A Research Guide to Statutes by Subject (2003). These publications gave extensive reviews of each selected source to give the researcher an idea of what the resource contained before trying to obtain it.
Many works referenced in the original titles have since changed titles, scope, authors, and publishers and the authors found it difficult to obtain physical copies of many of these resources. Wolotira and Leysen, have, therefore, changed the scope of their review, and the content included. View a full comparison to the previous edition here.
