Join Us on June 30 for the FDLP Academy Webinar on Law Library Digital Collections

The FDLP (Federal Depository Library Program) Academy Mission is to “Create and deliver enhanced educational opportunities to the FDLP community by fostering collaboration, by facilitating knowledge sharing, and through the application of new methods and use of multiple mediums.”

The Law Library of Congress is engaging in rapid digitization of many rare collection materials and historical U.S. Government documents, as well as its collection of original research on foreign, comparative, and international law topics for Congress and federal agencies. Staff from the Digital Resources Division of the Law Library of Congress look forward to sharing updates on our ongoing digital projects at the upcoming webinar Digital Collections at the Law Library of Congress: Past, Present, and Future, which is hosted by FDLP Academy, a service of the U.S. Government Publishing Office (GPO).

Join us for a walkthrough of our historical legal collections (including the Statutes at Large and U.S. Reports), a presentation of the work on our current collections (including our Legal Report Archive and 15th-19th Century Spanish Legal Documents), and a discussion on the forthcoming collections (including the U.S. Congressional Serial Set).
