Law Library Journal (Fall 2008): “Schoolhouse Rock is No Longer Enough”

The latest issue of Law Library Journal [vol. 100, no. 4, Fall 2008] has an interesting piece by I-Wei Wang, Reference Librarian, University of California Berkeley, School of Law Library titled “Schoolhouse Rock is No Longer Enough: The Presidential Signing Statements Controversy and Its Implications for Library Professionals.” The particularly aggressive use by President George W.
