This article is about two things. First, it is about the perplexing failure of law reviews (or law schools, or law professors) to do something that is undoubtedly worthwhile and within their reach: put online the sources, or at least the hard-to-find sources, cited in the law review articles they publish (or subsidize, or write). Second, it is about a plan to put those sources online anyway, by starting small and simple. The website is, at least for starters, a plain online home for those hard-to-find cited sources that should and can be shared with readers – with a little bit of help from authors and law reviews.
