Why aren’t all commemorative months on the Law Library’s website?

The Law Library's Commemorative Observances pages are in the process of being converted to Research Guides, with a guide planned for each of those pages.  As of October 2021, two of these guides have been published, National Hispanic Heritage Month and National Disability Employment Awareness Month, with additional research guides to follow in the coming months.

Researchers can use the general instructions for searching executive branch material on any of the existing commemorative observances guides (example) for directions on finding presidential material on other commemorative observances. For instructions on how to find federal legislation on a particular commemorative month, use Congress.gov’s “Introduction to Search.”

The Law Library’s former guide to commemorative observances is archived on the Internet Archive Wayback Machine External.
