Abstract

Research and Law Drafting Best Practices for Connected and Cooperative Parliamentary libraries

The increasing demand for comparative law analysis by national regulators (such as parliaments) requires comparativists and other researchers the availability of efficient information search tools. While the Internet provides access to infinite data sources, it is not always possible for the researcher to find valid, current and accurate foreign legal information, and clearly originated in a specific political, ideological, economic and social context. This document contains a proposal in order to create an electronic information search tool of a collaborative nature, between researchers from different jurisdictions. Its aim is to facilitate the elaboration of adequate and reliable comparative analysis, as a useful input for regulatory bodies’ decision making.

Buenas Prácticas de investigación y redacción jurídica para bibliotecas parlamentarias conectadas y colaboradoras

La creciente demanda por análisis de derecho comparado, por parte de los organismos reguladores nacionales (como son los parlamentos y congresos), exige a los comparativistas y demás investigadores, contar con eficientes herramientas de búsqueda de información. Si bien Internet permite acceder a fuentes infinitas de datos, no siempre es posible para el investigador recurrir a aquella información jurídica extranjera válida, vigente y precisa, evidenciando asimismo su contexto socio-histórico-económico determinado. El presente documento propone la creación de una herramienta de búsqueda de información electrónica de carácter colaborativo, entre investigadores de diferentes jurisdicciones. Su objetivo es facilitar la elaboración de análisis comparativos adecuados y confiables para la toma de decisiones por parte del ente regulador.
