Yoga in the Quiet Room for a Study Break — Today at 12:30pm

The Quiet Room, located in the Learning Commons, will be host to the last yoga session of the semester today at 12:30pm.

C|M|Law’s own Julie DiBiasio will lead the 30 minute sessions of restorative yoga. No mat is needed and these sessions are gentle enough that your regular clothes should be fine—no yoga gear necessary.

Take a study break and treat yourself to a little self-care!

U.S. Presidential Impeachment Library Now on HeinOnline

The new U.S. Presidential Impeachment Library from HeinOnline is available as part of our library’s subscription. This new collection includes not only Andrew Johnson, Bill Clinton, and Richard Nixon, but also Donald Trump, whose fate remains unknown as House Democrats introduced two articles of impeachment against him: abuse of power and obstruction of Congress.

Organized around the four affected presidents, this collection brings together a variety of documents both contemporaneous and asynchronous to each president’s impeachment, presenting both a snapshot of the political climate as each played out and the long view history has taken of past proceedings. Congressional Research Service reports round out a general discussion of presidential impeachment, and a curated list of scholarly articles, external links, and a bibliography provide avenues for further research on this topic.

Pleasure Reading After Finals

Most law students don’t get to do a lot of pleasure reading during the semester, but winter break is a great time to relax with a good book. The law library has law-related books, movies, and documentaries, which are located on the 1st floor to the left near the reference section (DVDs can be checked out for one week and renewed online).

Lots of fiction and other materials are also available through the law library’s catalog (Scholar), OhioLINK, and SearchOhio, which is the public library’s version of OhioLINK. By sharing resources, OhioLINK members have access to an additional 9.5 million popular materials and SearchOhio members have access to the circulating collection of OhioLINK. If an item you want is not available by searching the OhioLINK catalog, check the SearchOhio collection by clicking the “SearchOhio” icon on the upper right of the screen. Enter your ID and password just as you would when requesting OhioLINK materials, and the material will arrive in the same manner. Fine policies differ somewhat; ask a library staff member for details.


Research Government Social Media Posts on ProQuest Congressional

ProQuest Congressional is the database many people turn to for researching legislative histories, or other government information like hearings or bills. A newer feature of this robust database is the Political News & Social Media tab, where you have access to newspapers, blog coverage, press releases, videos and social media content. Currently, ProQuest Congressional allows you to search  government Tweets from July 2014 through December 2018 and government Facebook posts from March 2014 through June 2015.
