Legislative Research by State

by Sarah Prosory 22. July 2011 15:29

A former law librarian has taken up the task of posting legislative research information for each of the 50 states to her blog, a project she calls 50 States in 50 Weeks. Each week is another state, in alphabetical order of course! Week three was her post on Arizona legislative research. This is the 9th week and her post is on Florida legislative research.

Hat tip to Harvard Law School Library's Et Seq. blog for leading us to this great resource!

Some Friday fun..the states in alphabetical order! That reminds me of the song, Fifty Nifty United States! How many of you can sing the 50 States song? Get to about 45 seconds on the video below, where they begin: "Alabama, Alaska, Arizona, Arkansas..."

Leisure Time, Leisure Reading

by PSL Law Library 30. June 2011 15:18

 

Summer is a popular time to travel and for those of you who haven’t made plans yet it’s not too late.  Head to the Law Library and take a look at some of the magazines in the Leisure Reading Collection.  This collection is located on the short bookcases between the Arizona and General Collections.  Take a look at the latest edition of Travel & Leisure magazine for suggestions on places to visit.  Maybe you don’t have the time to travel outside of the state?  Peruse the pages of Phoenix magazine or Arizona Highways.  You’ll find ideas for weekend getaways and day trips.  If nothing catches your eye try looking at past issues located in the general collection. 

The Leisure Reading Collection isn’t just for travel buffs.  The Law Library has magazines that cover a variety of topics including sports, entertainment, financial news, and current events.  So when the semester begins and you want to take a break from it all for just 15 minutes, grab a magazine and relax.
