by Sabrina I. Pacifici on January 11, 2005

“The Law Librarians’ Society of Washington, D.C., Inc. is pleased to announce the availability on its Legislative Source Book Web page of a new website entitled United States Statutes and the United States Code: Historical Outlines, Notes, Lists, Tables, and Sources. The Website contains four handouts (in PDF with enhancements) from a November 9, 2004, program sponsored by the Society’s Legislative Research Special Interest Section, which detail the history and development of the U.S. Statutes at Large and the U.S. Code with explanatory notes, listing of content, discussion of U.S. Code notes, prima facie and positive law and other matters rarely found on the web. Also for the first time on the web are optically scanned PDF copies of the six tables of the United States Code, 2000 edition. Finally there are links, with notes on content, to most all the known electronic sources of the U.S. Statutes and the U.S. Code.” Compiled by Richard J. McKinney, Assistant Law Librarian, Federal Reserve Board.
