The U.S. Government Publishing Office (GPO) has launched a beta version of its new GovInfo web site. After it completes its beta phase, Govinfo will replace FDsys, the federal government website currently providing free public access to over 50 different collections of federal government information, including the United States Code, the Code of Federal Regulations, Congressional materials, and selected federal case law. Users of GovInfo can browse by A-Z list, by category, by date, and by congressional committee content. To see a list of collections available on Govinfo, visit here.
On Friday, November 13th, Brooklyn Law School Library learned from several users that the proxy server which provides you with access to many of our subscription services (such as Hein, BNA, JSTOR) was not working properly with the new BLS web site.
RIP Old Web Site
A website response team quickly moved into action.
Phil Allred, BLS’ Chief Information Officer, has created a work around until the web site developers can address this issue.
Maria Okonska, BLS Library’s Manager of Bibliographic Operations, developed easy-to-follow instructions to assist you in enabling the proxy server.
Thanks Phil and Maria!
To enable the proxy server, you need to make some adjustments to your web browser. BLS Library has posted detailed instruction for accessing the proxy server and they are located on our web site here.
