I was very happy to study the documents from the "Robert Cook-Deegan Human Genome Project Archive" at the Bioethics Research Library. The collection includes important correspondence with researchers in Japan as well as original pamphlets/documents in Japanese. These documents were invaluable to my research on human genome initiative in Japan. A special thank you to Martina and Nat, BRL Librarians who were extremely helpful in locating and preparing the documents.

Here at the Law Library of Congress reference desk, we often receive questions from patrons about accessing copies of early legal dictionaries. Although there are a few commercial databases that offer digitized version of a few early titles, this freely-available collection provided by Georgetown’s law library should prove to be a valuable contribution to legal scholars, academics, and practitioners.

One of the strategic goals of the Initiative on Technology-Enhanced Learning (ITEL) is to make reusable digital content available to the entire Georgetown community. CNDLS is happy to partner with Lauinger Library and Digital Georgetown to house the growing collection of videos, documents, and online learning modules generated through ITEL projects. We are excited to offer our entire community this resource, through which anyone can discover, examine, and evaluate many of the innovative materials that have shaped much of ITEL.
