It’s out! The 2006 “hot list” of Connecticut’s most popular public acts, compiled by the State Library’s Legislative Bill Room is available at http://www.cslib.org/06hotlist.htm. These are acts that either generated a lot of press coverage or were frequently asked about by CSL patrons during the 2006 legislative session. Don’t forget – we also offer a subject index to CT’s public and special acts from the 2006 session at http://www.cslib.org/indexing/psindex06/index.asp

This important regional paper has been added to the other six newspapers available on iCONN. You may search for articles published in the Boston Globe back to 1980. Remember that iCONN also includes the Christian Science Monitor, the Hartford Courant, the Hartford Courant Historical (back to 1764), the New York Times, the Wall Street Journal and the Washington Post.

It also includes film and video clips of social, political and cultural historical events of the 20th Century from 1893 to 1985.
