The AALL Electronic Legal Information Access and Citation Committee updated the original state summaries to determine how much progress states have made since AALL published its 2007 report. The updates show that a number of states have followed through on concerns AALL raised in the original report by adding official and authentic notations to their legal information. One of the most significant changes noted in the 2009-10 update is the addition of disclaimers to many state Web sites regarding authentication and official format of the information online. However, the report also highlights another troubling trend: a growing number of states are eliminating their print legal publications in favor of online-only without guaranteeing digital authentication or permanent public access.
