You may have noticed that a lot of books are moving around the library. Here are today’s updated maps to let you know where things are located for the time being. The collection is in flux so check in with the Reference Desk if you are unable to locate any items.

We now have access to the Cambridge University Press International Law Reports, a publication devoted to reporting in English decisions of international courts and arbitrators, as well as judgments of national courts.
The SPCA Dog Therapy program is coming back to the Law Library beginning Monday, April 27th. Dog therapy is designed to be a fun stress-reliever for our busy students, a gift of some happy-go-lucky play with a furry friend as relief from studying. So take a break and let one of these trained, friendly dogs help you forget all about the law for a few minutes.
Our doggie “therapists” will be located on the fourth floor of the 200 McAllister building in the Library. Students are welcome to sign up for 10-minute stress break sessions. All dogs are friendly and trained and accompanied by experienced SPCA volunteers. Sign-up sheets and more information can be found at the Library circulation desk. Read here about the science of eye to eye contact between humans and dogs.

Facing a barrage of questions he could not answer from his Senate Education Committee colleagues — particularly about the right of California children to attend public schools even if they are unvaccinated — Sen. Richard Pan on Wednesday agreed to delay by one week the committee’s vote on his controversial vaccine legislation.
The unexpected retreat seemed a promising turn of events for hundreds of opponents who again showed up in the Capitol to challenge lawmakers and insist the bill would deprive them of their right to choose not to vaccinate their children. And some believe the delay could imperil the chances of the legislation’s passage.
Pan, a pediatrician, co-authored Senate Bill 277, which would repeal the state’s personal belief exemption and require that only children who have been immunized for diseases such as measles and whooping cough be admitted to a school in California. It would also require schools to notify parents of immunization rates at their children’s schools.
The reference desk will be closed this Sunday, April 5. It will re-open Monday, April 6 at 8:30 am.
