Legal Research Weekly cites
the March 30, 2008 issue [#293] of Internet
Legal Research Weekly:
State libraries are increasingly developing terrific online resources, and the California State Library site is no exception. Although of course you'll find more at the physical library itself, the online version provides a whole lotta stuff. You have access to all of the library's catalogs, so that you can find books, legal materials, documents, maps, videos, and more. There's a picture catalog featuring selected images from the library's collections, and a good set of online resources. You can also subscribe to one of 5 RSS feeds, to keep up with the latest developments.

and inspiring. We could have listened to you for much longer! Many
of us, including me, will be checking out your blog to find the information you
referenced. I know that putting together a presentation of this quality
takes a lot of time and dedication, and it was clear that you worked hard for
us. You have motivated us to take the next steps into the future.
