Library Introduces Legal Resource Index Service

We are pleased to announce that the Supreme Court Criminal Term Library in New York City has just introduced a new computer based service to enable both judges and other library users, including the public, to quickly gain access to a broad range of information with a minimum amount of intervention. The center can be thought of as a greatly enhanced electronic index area. It is designed to add value to research performed on individual workstations. Our blog is incorporated directly into this new service.

A more detailed description is contained on the New York Supreme Court Criminal Term Library weblog at http://www.bloglines.com/blog/pll

Your comments and questions are welcome.
