Law Library of Congress Redesigns Legal Blawg Archive

The Law Library of Congress has updated the user interface of its Legal Blawg Archive.

Since about 2007, the Library has been collecting snapshots of select legal blawgs on a monthly basis. The vast majority are American but there are a few Canadian blawgs, including Slaw.ca.

As explained in a post yesterday in In Custodia Legis, the Law Library of Congress blog, the changes include:
"(1) thumbnail images for each of the archived blogs, which are embedded into both the results list and the individual item records; (2) faceted search options on the left-hand side of the results list, which allow search results to be narrowed by the year of the web capture, the specific legal subject of the blog, and the state/country/continent of origin for the blog; and (3) individual item records that include all web captures for blogs that have had changes in their URLs."
