Abstract

In The Virtual Tax Library: A Comparison of Five Electronic Tax Research Platforms, http://ssrn.com/abstract=1017925, Jennifer Kowal, Daniel Martin and I refer readers to an earlier article, Federal Tax Sources Recommended for Law School Libraries, 87 L. LIBR. J. 387 (1995), for a list of hundreds of print tax sources, with recommendations about which sources law libraries should include in their collections. I compiled the recommended source list in this earlier article after surveying law professors and practitioner-commentators to determine which tax sources they regard as essential or useful. For each recommended print source, I indicate whether, based on the survey results, the source is (i) essential, (ii) highly recommended, or (iii) recommended. The tax sources are grouped into four lists: (i) practice-oriented sources, arranged alphabetically by author; (ii) tax policy sources, arranged alphabetically by author; (iii) practice-oriented sources, arranged by ranking; and (iv) tax policy sources, arranged by ranking. Numerous readers of the recent Virtual Tax Library article have contacted me to request a copy of Federal Tax Sources Recommended for Law School Libraries; the 1995 article is now available on SSRN.
