- Just about everything you need to know is in the Little Red Book. You'll have to look for it, but it's there.
- Print culture takes time. The links are there, but sometimes they need legs. For example, if you want to track the history of an act, start with the original; if it's not the current version, there will be a reference to the next reprint; if that's not the current version, there will be a reference to the next reprint (and the next, and the next) until you get to the latest reprint, which will either be current, or tell you what repealed it. Another example: there aren't always consolidated indexes, so you may need to repeat the same search over numerous volumes - start with the earliest possible date and work forward.
