UPDATE (5/11): New: From the Law Library of Congress: Elena Kagan: Compilation of Resources About the Supreme Court Nominee

Update: Text Transcript: Remarks by the President and Solicitor General Elena Kagan at the Nomination of Solicitor General Elena Kagan to the Supreme Court
Video of remarks are also available.

The NNDB (Notable Names Database) provides a well organized "fact sheet" about Supreme Court Nominee Elena Kagan.

We've been using this little known but very useful database for a couple of years and while it's not perfect (eg, in many cases more current pictures would be useful), we think it does a solid job and offers some useful visualizations (aka NNDB Maps) between people, companies, organizations. Here's Kagan's "NNDB Map." More on NNDB and maps in a second post in the next day or two.

A Bibliography of Articles that She Has Written that Appear in Periodicals (via Kagan's Harvard Law School Directory Page).
