How are Government Law Librarians Handling the Pandemic?

On my In Seclusion Podcast miniseries this week I’ve talked with government law librarians from across the country to see how they are continuing services through the shelter-in-place rules, and how they are preparing to reopen as states start to ease these restrictions. The common emotions are a mix of frustration and determination. One of the traits of librarians, especially those who serve the public directly, is that nothing should get in the way of access to justice and the open availabili...

California should take the lead in tackling the military’s sexual assault epidemic.

As coronavirus continues to sweep across California and most of us shelter-at-home, National Guard members are deploying across the state to help.
