A Current Awareness Service of
Cornell Law Library
InSITE highlights selected law-related World Wide Web sites in two ways: as an annotated
publication issued electronically and in print; and as a keyword-searchable database.

Cornell evaluate potentially useful Web sites, select the most valuable ones, and provide
commentary and subject access to them. These information can be accessed as following:
- Current Issue
- Archived Issues
- Searchable Database
- Syndicated Search of all Annotated Web Sites
- RSS FEED of the Current Issues
[What is RSS?]
- E-mail subscription: send the following request to firstname.lastname@example.org:
