Tomorrow (July 14, 2007) the Law Library of Congress will celebrate its 175th birthday. (You can trace its history here.) Established in 1832, it was the first distinctly created unit of the Library of Congress.
We used the Library of Congress?s 207th birthday (an odd number, I know) to launch this blog, so we thought tomorrow’s milestone would be a good reason to help some of our Law Library colleagues get in on the blogging game.
Actually, we’ve been discussing this for a while, as the Law Library folks have been one of the earliest groups at LOC to take an active interest in blogging. Because we anticipate an institution-wide policy to allow the creation of additional audience-specific blogs, some of our own the legal eagles will be guest-blogging a couple of posts in this space to get their feet (or talons?whatever eagles have) wet.
I will be publishing two LLOC-related posts today by Andrew Weber of the Law Library. (And no, his middle name is not ?Lloyd.?) So if you?re a lawyer or you have an interest in the topics, join the fray!
