Secret studying hideaway

Need a super quiet place to study? I get my best contemplation done on the lower level, down the stairs by Room 104. There is a bank of carrels there by the stairs that hardly anyone uses. Shh! - don't give away the secret.

National Center for Juvenile Justice

The National Center for Juvenile Justice is a private, non-profit organization. In particular, it is the research division of the National Council of Juvenile and Family Court Judges. It has its own budget, however, and it is responsible for generating its own operating funds.

The Center’s Web site offers freely available resources for independent and original research on subjects that relate directly and indirectly to the field of juvenile justice. Click the “Publications” link for an alphabetical, drop-down menu listing their various publications.

Those Song Lyrics--Now You Know

From my comfy spot in the library, I've noticed that some stress-reducing ideas for quick study breaks might be helpful these days. Just in time for exam period, Yahoo! has teamed up with Gracenote, a leader in digital entertainment technology, to provide easily searchable lyrics to about 400,000 songs on its Yahoo!Music web site. Are there any popular song lyrics-- from Motown to Metallica--that you never did understand, just can’t remember, or have disputed with your friends? Now all you need to do is use the new Yahoo!Music search engine by selecting "lyrics" in the drop down menu and typing the title or a few words you remember. Yahoo!Music will produce the full lyrics as published for any song in the database that matches your search. When you need a few minutes' escape from the law, give it a try.

Monday, April 30, 2007 is an online resource for people with disabilities. After the Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990 was passed into legislation, George H. W. Bush created the New Freedom Initiative which instructed Federal agencies to work together and put together a comprehensive web site to give people a single access point online for resources related to disabilities.
