Featured Resource List

 

 

 

 Prestatehood legal materials : a fifty-state research guide, including New York City and the District of Columbia / Michael Chiorazzi, Marguerite Most, editors.  Haworth Information Press, c2005.

 

KF240.P688 2005

 

This title provides the reader with brief overviews of state histories from colonization to acceptance into the U.S.  It then identifies a wide range of readily available resources from each state to reveal the underlying legal principles that helped form the United States.  It also shows how foreign countries controlled the laws of the territories and how these states eventually broke away to govern themselves.  Additionally it covers the legal issues with Native Americans, inter-state and the Mexico and Canadian borders, and the development of the executive, legislative, and judicial branches of state government.  Involving 70 law librarians (including our Mon Yin Lung, O’Quinn Law Library Associate Director) and three years in the making, this 52 chapter, two volume, 1500 page title is the one-stop guide to the history and development of law in the U.S. and the change from territory to statehood.  It was recommended in the 2006 edition of the Legal Information Buyer's Guide & Reference Manual as an essential tool in this formerly neglected area of scholarship.

 

 

 

Chasing Moore's law : information technology policy in the United States / edited by William Aspray.  SciTech Pub., c2004.

 

KF2765.A87 2004

Intending to help policy people to understand the basic issues of IT policy and the IT professionals to understand the process by which their technology is politically controlled, this title provides an introductory overview to all of the major policy issues in the United States related to information technology.  Issues discussed include federal funding of research that helped to create the Internet; regulations about wireless technologies; computer security and homeland defense; governance and use of the Internet such as spam, viruses, electronic voting, taxation of online commerce, and child pornography; privacy; intellectual property issues such as copyright infringement related to peer-to-peer sharing of music and video files, or trademark infringement through the misuse of domain names (“cybersquatting”); antitrust in the software industry; uneven access to information technology in poor, rural, and minority communities; and even visas for foreign workers.  Every chapter identifies the main players, the history of legislation and court cases in this area, and describes recent events.
