In this busy profession of ours (law librarianship), we often find it difficult to keep up with the endless amounts of information published each day. As a result, you may have asked yourself whether there is an easier way to get the information you need without having to visit every law-related website. Well, now you can with RSS feeds. (Actually, they’ve been around in one form or another since 1999, but I wanted an intriguing lead paragraph to keep your attention.)
Thanks to Robert Ambrogi’s Lawsites Blog for pointing out that FindLaw has added twenty-three RSS feeds for case summaries to the Supreme Court and Circuit Courts as well as feeds from several state appellate courts including California, New York, Delaware, Florida, Illinois, and Texas courts. In addition, FindLaw also provides several feeds in the practice areas of bankruptcy, contracts, family law, and patent law, among others.
So if you still don’t know what an RSS feed is then check out this Google help page on the subject. And if you do know what an RSS feed is then click here to subscribe to one, some, or all of the feeds provided by FindLaw.
