Global Legal Information Network (GLIN) Garners Excellence in Government Award

From an Announcement:

The Global Legal Information Network (GLIN), a database administered by the Law Library of Congress, was among the "Top Five" projects to receive a 2009 excellence in government award from the Industry Advisory Council (IAC). GLIN was recognized for "excellence in transparency" (openness and accountability).

GLIN is a public database of official texts of laws, regulations, judicial decisions and other complementary legal sources contributed by 36 governmental agencies and international organizations, covering 51 jurisdictions. The database, searchable in 14 languages, is accessible online at www.glin.gov. Each document is certified as authentic, cataloged and tagged using a controlled vocabulary, which facilitates search and retrieval.
