InSITE provided by Cornell Law Library

So many websites, so little time and can I trust it? Cornell Law Library arrives with assistance.

InSITE, a current awareness service of Cornell Law Library. InSITE highlights selected law-related Web sites in two ways: as an annotated publication issued electronically and in print; and as a keyword-searchable database. The law librarians at Cornell evaluate potentially useful Web sites, select the most valuable ones, and provide commentary and subject access to them.

Why is this important? Because an institution like Cornell has vetted and evaluated the sites. Google does not aid you with evaluating the reliability of a site. This is not a one stop place for information, but it is a good place to start.
