Bluebook War(s), Barco 2.0 : Law Library Reference,  from the Librarians of the Barco Law Library, University of Pittsburgh School of Law (with hat tip to William P. Statsky!)


The Bluebook, for most legal professionals, is the legal citation Bible. It is required by law schools, law libraries, and multiple state and federal courts as the required guide to legal citation. It has come under attack for its frequent revisions that contain minor changes to citation form.

Since 2009, it has also been under attack for other reasons – those who want to take it away from its current publishers and put it in the public domain. Carl Malamud of Public Resource leads the charge. -CCE
