Law Library of Congress Releases New Chatbot

From the Law Library of Congress In Custodia Legis blog:

We are excited to announce the release of a new chatbot that can connect you to primary sources of law, Law Library research guides and our foreign law reports. The chatbot has a clickable interface that will walk you through a basic reference interview.

Users can find the chatbot on the Law Library of Congress Facebook page by clicking on the “Send Message” button near their cover photo. I tested it out, and it seems like a great resource to pass along to patrons just getting started on their legal research and just need to be pointed in the right direction.

The Law Library will add to the chatbot’s vocabulary based on user interactions, so it should be interesting to watch as this new feature matures.
