If pressed on the subject, we’d say our favorite part of the public library in the New England town where we grew up was the reference section.
The books there were too valuable to borrow– you had to use them at the table right under the librarian’s nose. Even if you could have checked them out, they were too big to carry around. And no one we knew had any of those books at home, so in addition to heft, rarity added to the attraction.
On the subject of reference works, we added a few to this space at the start of the year. If you missed them, the new or updated items include:
The 2010 FCPA Enforcement Index. It’s all the FCPA-related DOJ prosecutions and SEC civil proceedings during the past year.
The Corporate Investigations List. As far as we know, it’s the most complete list of ongoing FPCA-related investigations by the DOJ or SEC or both. A reader in D.C. did the heavy lifting on this one.
The Top Ten FCPA Cases of All Time. It changed again in late December; here’s the latest version.
This Christmas, by the way, we finally secured unrestricted access to an enormous reference library we can carry around wherever we go. Thank you, Kindle.
