"Nota Bene" means "note this well" or "take particular notice." We at the O'Quinn Law Library will be posting tips on legal research techniques and resources, developments in the world of legal information, happenings at the Law Library, and legal news reports that deserve your particular attention. We look forward to sharing our thoughts and findings and to hearing from you.

N.B: Make a note to visit "Nota Bene" regularly.

Law Library of Congress Hearing Digitization Project

The Law Library of Congress has a collection of approximately 75,000 bound volumes of congressional hearings, and is partnering with Google on a pilot project to digitize all of them and make them freely available to the public.

Currently, there are selections relating to the U.S. Census, privacy and freedom of information, and immigration, with many more planned to follow. All of the digitized hearings are searchable PDFs, and full citation information is provided.
