Digitized Version of Kappler’s Indian Affairs: Laws and Treaties Now Available

The U.S. Government Publishing Office and Oklahoma State University’s Edmon Low Library have partnered to make the digital versions of Indian Affairs: Laws and Treaties, available on GPO’s govinfo.
This eight volume publication (commonly called Kappler’s after its original editor) was digitized by the Edmon Low Library and contributed to govinfo through a Digital Content Contributor partnership.
Kappler’s is a compilation containing U.S. treaties, laws, and executive orders pertaining to Native American Indian tribes. The volumes cover U.S. Government treaties with Native Americans from 1778-1883 (Volume II) and U.S. laws and executive orders concerning Native Americans from 1871-1970 (Volumes I, III-VII). A supplement compiling Code of Federal Regulations related to Native Americans was published in 1975.

New Courts’ Opinions Available on govinfo

In recent months, GPO and the Administrative Office of the United States Courts (AOUSC) have made available five new courts’ opinions in the U.S. Courts collection on govinfo. This effort began as a pilot project in 2011 to provide public access to opinions from selected United States appellate, district, and bankruptcy courts.
The recently-added content includes opinions from the U.S. District Court for the District of Guam, the U.S. Bankruptcy Court Eastern District of Washington, the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of California, and most recently this past June, the U.S. Bankruptcy Court District of Puerto Rico and the U.S. Bankruptcy Court Western District of Michigan.
These five courts’ opinions join an expanding corpus of judicial opinions available to search, browse, and download on govinfo. Opinions from 118 courts are now available in govinfo, and GPO will continue to add opinions as they are provided to GPO by the courts. As a provider of free public access to official publications from all three branches of the Federal Government, the U.S. Courts collection is one of the largest collections in govinfo.
