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

The Law Library's Commemorative Observances page is not meant to be an exhaustive list of commemorative observances, of which there are many.  Rather, it is a sample of various commemorative observances throughout the year.  Researchers can use the general instructions for searching executive branch material on any of the existing commemorative pages (example) as a guide to finding presidential material on other commemorative observances. For a guide to finding federal legislation on a particular commemorative month, use Congress.gov’s “Introduction to Search.”
