  • national inventory
  • google scholar and records and briefs project
  • phase II after inventory dealing with assertions of copyright (especially state supreme court opinions)

Beth Noveck, Deputy Chief Technology Officer

Michael White, Director of Legal Affairs, Office of the Fed. Register

  • ecfr and authentication

Stephen Schultze

  • CITP – and judicial transparency

Discussion about national inventory of primary legal materials:

  • if people complain law.gov will take it down without mentioning in the index whether the information exist but is not available or whether it does not exist
  • I was told that it won’t be available through a Google search but through an internal search engine

a Lexis rep: believes that Lexis picks up from where gov leaves it; all they need is access; they do not need metadata

Tim Wu explained altlaw

Enthusiasts (myself included) urged the group to use Omeka.org as the platform to use for entering, accessing and archiving the data
