Federal Equal Employment Opportunity Laws, Cases, and Resources

The Law Librarians’ Society of Washington, D.C. offers a convenient gathering in one place of Federal Equal Employment Opportunity laws, cases, and other resources. In addition to the laws themselves, there are links to Congressional Research Service reports, federal agency resources, recent judicial opinions, and much more on the subject of federal equal employment opportunity law.

Paper Writing Resources workshop

Students who were not able to attend asked that we record the presentation and make it available on our website. The workshop was recorded today and will shortly be available on the Library's webcast page. A handout for paper writing resources is available here. The handout is not quite the same as the recording but either or both are useful.

World Digital Library

The World Digital Library (WDL) is pretty amazing. The mission of the library is to "makes available on the Internet, free of charge and in multilingual format, significant primary materials from countries and cultures around the world."

Proposed by U.S. Librarian of Congress James H. Billington, the basic idea of WDL was to create an "Internet-based, easily-accessible collection of the world's cultural riches that would tell the stories and highlight the achievements of all countries and cultures, thereby promoting cross-cultural awareness and understanding."

WDL partners are mainly libraries, archives, or other institutions that have collections of cultural content that they contribute. Click here to browse WDL by place, time, material format, or topic.
