Social Media Discrimination?

by Library 3. May 2011 15:16

We all know to be careful about what we post on Facebook. Are employers checking your Facebook site prior to making hiring decisions? Is it legal? A recent article in Fastcase discusses this issue. Find out if your home state has a "Lifestyle Discrimination" statute.

What is Fastcase? Fastcase is a legal research database that the Arizona State Bar Association (and 17 other state bar associations) makes available to its members as a free benefit. The PSL Law Library also has a subscription and offers training workshops from time to time.

Two Trial Databases From BNA

by Sarah Prosory 25. February 2011 11:25

Hi all! Happy Friday!

The Law Library would like your feedback on two databases we have on a trial period from BNA: the Internet Law Resource Center and the Telecommunications Law Resource Center. We only have these on trial for 15 days beginning today, so be sure to test them out soon!

The Internet Law Resource Center covers major topics such as: consumer protection laws, copyright and trademark issues, cryptography, database protection, electronic signatures, domain name disputes, network security, online marketing, privacy, taxation, internet governance, and more!

The Telecommunications Law Resource Center covers major topics such as: broadcasting, wireless communications, cable TV, broadband regulation, retransmission consent, media ownership, satellite services, net neutrality, and more!

Please visit the Law Library's Database Trial Subscriptions wiki to access the trials. You will need to log-in to Juristec to view the wiki (only faculty, staff, and students of PSL can access this).

Thanks! Have a great weekend!
