As the first third of the year draws to a close, I thought it would be nice to take a look at the metrics for a few different resources on and the Law Library’s website.  I find it helpful, when thinking about how to update and improve our website, to review what gets the most attention from our users.

Robert updates the Most-Viewed Bills page each week.  What are the 2015 top five bills so far? Most-Viewed Bills Most-Viewed Bills
