The Haiti Legal Patrimony Project

The Law Library Microform Consortium has undertaken a project to help rebuild Haiti’s law libraries after the devastating earthquake that hit the country a year ago today. Member libraries are working to build a digital law library from libraries around the world. They have created a Master Title List consisting of a constitutional section, a legislative and administrative section, a judicial section, general treatises, U.S. documents and treatises, and multi-jurisdiction titles. Law librarians are helping by checking their own libraries for titles.

You can find more information about the project here.
