Morison's Dictionary

With the cooperation of the Scottish Council of Law Reporting (a Scottish charity which is working to make early Scottish case law as widely available as possible), indexing at the case level is now available in William Morison's Decisions of the Court of Session, from Its Institution until the Separation of the Court into Two Divisions in the Year 1808, Digested under Proper Heads, in the Form of a Dictionary. Previously, this was indexed only to the chapter heading level. The case level indexing enables a user to expand the content of any volume in this set to view all decisions contained in that volume:


This indexing also improves searchability of the cases, and displays case information in search results, which was previously unavailable:

Indexing has also been added to Supplement to the Dictionary of the Decisions of the Court of Session, by M.P. Brown. Between Morison's Dictionary and Brown's Supplement, more than 20,000 cases are now indexed. Both titles can be found in Scottish Legal History: Featuring Publications of the Stair Society.

Thank you to the Council for their work on this project and for helping to make this great resource even more valuable to our users.

Congressional Record Daily to Bound Citation Locator

Thanks to a great suggestion from Stephanie Paup, Research & Training Librarian at Crowell & Moring LLP, we have added the Congressional Record Daily to Bound Citation Locator to the Citation Navigator tab in the U.S. Congressional Documents collection:

This tool enables users to easily retrieve Congressional Record Bound or Congressional Record Daily Edition documents using the proper Bluebook citation, and also to quickly find material between the Daily and Bound Editions. Previously, this tool was available only from the Resources tab, and including it in both locations is more convenient and intuitive. Users can also access the citation locator at the top of the page to find both the Congressional Record Bound and Congressional Record Daily editions by their abbreviations:

As always, we welcome and encourage customer feedback!
