The Law Library is pleased to announce a new library display on law and policy, mounted by CLPA. Created in January of this year, CLPA is a non-partisan student organization with the purpose of working to identify and create resources to enable students to actively engage with international and domestic policy and to prepare and compete for careers or interests in public policy, private, and government sectors.
CLPA accomplishes its mission using three guiding pillars: education, networking and action, which are represented in the November Law Library Display. President, Ruby Lichte Powers, and Publicity Chair, Corey Atkins, helped prepare and complete the display.
Please stop by, take a look and expand your mind ...

Google has added a new site where you can location press releases from the government, information from government Web sites, and news as part of Google’s drive to digitize government documents and records. The National Archives and Records Administration has given Google about 20 government films to digitize and post on Google Video.
U.S. Congressional hearings are going to be digitized by Google and additional materials are under negotiation.
