Anyone who has tried to do Massachusetts Legislative History Research knows it can be very challenging because the Commonwealth does not publish reports and other legislative documents for the general public. We have acquired a new database, InstaTrac, which is collecting these reports, starting in 2011. InstaTrac also allows users to track current legislation, and receive the Daily Journal and legislative news via email. These updates are an excellent way to stay up to date on the activities of the General Court.
In addition to this great content, InstaTrac also provides helpful tips on how to use the system. The database includes a document on How to Get the Most Out of Your MassTrac Service as well as a detailed Help section. If you have any questions about using InstaTrac, please contact a reference librarian.
