Morrison & Foerster Privacy Library

Morrison & Foerster maintains a wonderful “Privacy Library” of statutes, regulations,  links to government institutions, and IGO & NGO reports. This includes all 50 states and many foreign countries. The foreign country pages provide the laws and regulations in the vernacular and in English when avialable. All of this is available free of charge.

Hat tip to Paul for finding this resource.

Elektronische Zeitschriftenbibliothek – Electronic Journals Library

A consortium of German university libraries, led by the University Library of Regensburg, maintains the Electromic Journals Library (Elektronische Zeitschriftenbibliothek ). This Web site provides links to online journals organized by topic, one of which is law. The law category contains hundreds of  journals in dozens of languages. The site conveniently indicates which journals provide free content and those that charge per article. Vielen dank to our German colleagues for this useful journal resource.

ABA Journal: Free Online Legal Research Overtakes For-Fee Services

Among other interesting things, the ABA Journal displays a chart “Research: Free v. Fee” in its September 2008 issue — in an article titled Web 2.0 Still a No-go: Lawyers slow to adopt cutting-edge technology — indicating that free online legal research has now overtaken for-fee services.
