On the first Monday
of October, the U.S. Supreme Court opened its current term. In honor of
this event, we'd like to highlight one of our recently acquired
electronic resources - Thomson-Gale's Supreme Court Records and Briefs.
Containing nearly 11 million pages of records and briefs brought before
the U.S. Supreme Court in the period 1832-1978, this product provides
an essential primary source tool for the study of all aspects of
American history as well as the U.S. judicial system
This collection concentrates on the history of the Supreme Court from
the final years of the court's fourth chief justice, John Marshall,
through the first ten years of the court's 15th chief justice, Warren
By presenting the background and context of the cases presented to the
high court, U.S. Supreme Court Records and Briefs contains essential
primary source material on major legal topics such as the
interpretation of the constitution, judicial review, states' rights,
slavery, government's role in war, free enterprise, civil liberties,
intellectual property and the evolving nature of race, gender,
faith and identity.
Famous cases and topics are at your fingertips. From the briefs and
transcripts in Plessy v. Ferguson to the famous "Brandeis Brief" in
Muller v. Oregon to the many briefs in Brown v. Board of Education,
Miranda v. Arizona, Roe v. Wade, U.S. v. Nixon, and all other
groundbreaking U.S. Supreme Court decisions.
A link to U.S. Supreme Court Records and Briefs may be found on our
Research Resources page, http://www.law.uga.edu/library/research/index.html.
Feel free to contact a reference librarian for questions regarding this
digital library or with any of our print or online offerings.
