Major Database Updates

History of Supreme Court Nominations was recently updated to include a new volume featuring unsuccessful Supreme Court nominee Justice Merrick Garland.

The Session Laws Library indexing project continues: all 50 states are already indexed to the chapter or act level from 2000 to date. In 2017, we announced an amended tactic: states would be indexed back to inception one at a time, beginning with the most accessed states. Last month, the indexing for Minnesota was completed back to inception. Other states that have been indexed back to inception include California, Florida, Georgia, Illinois, Indiana, Maryland, Massachusetts, New York, Ohio, and Texas. Moving forward, the focus will be on Pennsylvania.

U.S. Statutes at Large has been updated to include Public and Private Laws of the United States. The addition of these laws combined with the U.S. Statutes at Large bound edition now provides comprehensive coverage from inception to date of all Public and Private Laws of the United States.
