Spotlight on…CRS Reports

Let’s say you read an article at SFGate today about global warming and you wondered what Congress was doing about it. Where would you start? A great subscription database to search is CRS.
The Congressional Research Service (CRS) works exclusively for members and committees of the United States Congress. An arm of the Library of Congress, the agency is renowned for its non-partisanship and its in-depth analysis of issues.
Here’s a report reviewing “the status of energy efficiency and renewable energy legislation introduced during the 110th Congress.”

The Catalog Says the Book is Here…but Where?

The First Floor Library collection contains Reference, Course Reserves placed by professors, Witkin, Shepards, popular legal treatises, primary legal materials, and books beginning with call numbers A-G, L-N, Q-V.
