This month we welcomed both Tina and Jeanine to what we affectionately refer to as our blog team. Tina wasted little time in claiming the top spot with her post A Law Classification Scheme as Linked Data?. Her post was also mentioned on the Legal Informatics Blog, Infodocket, and the Law Librarian Blog. Jeanine’s first post as an official blogger was on the 2012 Harper Lee Prize for Legal Fiction. She had previously snuck in a few posts as a guest blogger.
Kelly’s Cherry Blossoms post was mentioned on The Common Curator while the Congressional Record iPad app post was mentioned in this post on Charlotte Law Library News. They also posted a review of In Custodia Legis geared towards law students that said we “can be entertaining should you find a few minutes to spare from your own legal studies.”
This week on the Facebook page we’re highlighting web resources, blogs, and online archives for legal historians. To start things off, you might want to check out In Custodia Legis, the blog of the law librarians of Congress, which as Karen noted here, is archiving the blawgosphere.
The top three posts from a year ago in the March Retrospective of 2011 were:

On our Facebook page, the most liked post was Cherry Blossoms, Insects, and Inspections. The most clicked through post from Facebook was, by a large margin, Patrick’s interview. On Twitter, it was Celebrating Saint Patrick’s Day. I have noticed an uptick in people checking into the Law Library of Congress via Facebook or Foursquare.
