You may have heard of the Smithsonian Institution and know that it is located in Washington D.C. but do you know the “story behind the story”? Come visit the Todd Library during the month of June and find out about the benefactor, James Smithson and check out some of our wide varied collection produced by the Smithsonian.
In honor of National Women’s History Month, the Todd Library will join others in taking time to reexamine and celebrate the wide range of women’s contributions and achievements that are too often overlooked in the telling of our country’s history. Come in and check out our books and audio/visual materials either for enjoyment or a class project.
With this being such a “political year”, we have decided to focus on still another branch of the government for our February book display. February is the anniversary of the first session of the U.S. Supreme Court which met in New York City in 1790 with Chief Justice John Jay presiding. Come visit the Todd Library and learn more about the history of this governmental branch by checking out our selection.
How familiar are you with copyright laws and how they may apply to your life here on campus? January marks the anniversary of the Copyright Revision Law. The act (Public Law 94-553) contains substantial revisions of the principles governing acquisition and duration of copyright and deals with issues that have been raised in recent years concerning photocopying and the use of copyrighted works by public broadcasting and cable television systems. There have been even more additions/revisions since internet technology has become so prevalent. Come check out our book display and learn more about this important issue.
