Introduction to the Global Legal Information Network (GLIN) from the Law Library of Congress

From the Government Documents department...

The Law Library of Congress recently produced a short video, now available for viewing, that introduces a wonderful online resource called GLIN, the Global Legal Information Network. The 8-minute video features GLIN Director Janice Hyde and Comparative Law Specialist Hanibal Goitom discussing what the network is and how it was developed. In the video you will learn that GLIN is a network of governments working together to exchange legal information, as well as a rich database of legal materials contributed by 52 countries around the world. GLIN is an excellent research and reference tool that is definitely worth checking out
