New ways to search and browse the US Code
A recent blog entry from the Law Librarians of Congress has detailed some news ways that the US Code can be searched, viewed and downloaded from the Office of Law Revision Council website.
Users can now download section of the code or the entire code in four different formats: XML, XHTML, PCC or PDF. You can also do a bulk download using zip files. For searching and browsing, users can choose to search the entire code or one specific chapter or heading. You can also narrow your search to just one specific kind of entry, such as amendment notes. Possibly best of all for legislative history researchers, you can search either the current code or previous editions of the code.
