Welcome to in Custodia Legis – Mapping the Law of the US

We didn’t get around to noticing the Law Library of Congress’ new blog In Custodia Legis, which explains its name and aim here.

Today, it featured a new post on the developments at Thomas to make legislative information more accessible. There aren’t a lot of comments yet, but it’s early days.

The high spots for me were on Social Media and a Legislative Map at the State level, which looks simple but is only simple to use.

Social Media Box

In addition to easier access to the Library’s social media, there is a new box to highlight ways to connect with THOMAS and the Law Library of Congress through the In Custodia Legis Blog, Facebook, Twitter, YouTube, and iTunes U.

The high point for me is a splendid map hot-linked to all of the state legislative websites across the country. Beautifully programmed tool from Christine Sellers

State Legislature Page

A link to State Legislature Websites has been added to the THOMAS homepage. This new page displays a map with links to the legislative bodies for all fifty states, Washington, DC, and U.S. territories. It provides quick access to state legislative websites that are similar to what THOMAS provides on a federal level.

This is only a picture – the real map is the link above.
