“Is that against the law?” Finding an answer has become a lot easier in the last 10 years. The State of Minnesota has a long legal tradition, but until recently it was all on paper. In 1993, the State Law Library began collecting and digitizing copies of appellate court decisions and making them available to the public through the library’s website. In 2006, the library began a database of legal briefs as well. The Office of the Revisor of Statutes publishes the Session Laws, Statutes and Administrative Rules of the state. In 2010, they were awarded a Legacy grant to begin making materials available online and have now digitized all historical statutes, session laws and rules. These government agencies are archiving materials from the Legislative, Executive, and Judicial Branches of State Government and making them available to the public. We want to make attendees aware of the amazing resources available through these organizations, give some insight into how the databases were created and are maintained, and discuss upcoming and current projects.
