Who is Merrick Garland?

Law Journal Library, News, U.S. Congressional Documents, U.S. Supreme Court
Shannon Sabo

Last week, President Obama announced his choice for Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia's replacement. The debate between Republicans and Democrats over whether Merrick Garland will even receive a hearing or vote appears to be far from over, but he is now in the public eye as a possible Supreme Court justice.

Merrick Garland is a U.S. Court of Appeals judge who, as a special assistant to the U.S. Attorney General for the U.S. Department of Justice, supervised the prosecution of the Oklahoma City bombing and the Unabomber cases. He currently serves as the chief justice of the United States Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit

Books are Still Incredibly Relevant

Law Librarianship, News
Shannon Sabo

The internet is fantastic. You can figure out who sang that one-hit wonder you can't get out of your head, quickly determine the exact wording of Scrabble rules, and access millions of pages of law review articles with a swipe of your thumb.

There is still magic, however, in opening a book. Whether the book is brand new, old and musty, or somewhere in between, there is something exhilarating about opening and smelling its pages and discovering the wealth of information they contain. In addition to creating HeinOnline, William S. Hein & Co., Inc. publishes (and loves!) printed books.

11/22/63: A Beloved President is Taken too Soon

HeinOnline, News, Searching
Shannon Sabo

The anniversary of John F. Kennedy's death is a time to remember the idealism and values of the United States' 35th President. In his inaugural address, Kennedy made this famous statement: "Ask not what your country can do for you. Ask what you can do for your country." 

Kennedy took office during a recession, but made efforts to lower taxes, offer protections to the unemployed, increase the minimum wage, and stimulate the economy by focusing on business and housing sectors. His administration pumped money into domestic and military spending, and the recession faded.

Kennedy also pushed for new social programs, such as:

  • Federal aid for education
  • Medical care for the elderly
  • Urban mass transit
  • The Department of Urban Affairs

Kennedy also supported the growing civil rights movement
