New Legal Topic: Organ Donation

Starting this week, Wisconsin residents will be able to record their organ donation intentions using a secure online registry at yesiwillwisconsin.com.  The launching of this registry coincides with National Donate Life Month (April).  To commemorate both of these events, we have added a new legal topic: Organ and Tissue Donation.

Learn more about the law of organ donation and how you can donate life.

  2. Two is for getting articles and treatises online from anywhere both I and the internet happen to be.
  3. Three is for borrowing materials by mail
  4. Four is for saving searches in our catalog
  5. Five is for getting my summer thrillers from Prose & Cons
  6. Six is for borrowing from other libraries with Interlibrary Loan
  7. Seven is for...   Well, you'll just have to wait and see!
This spring and summer we will be running a series of short articles on what your Wisconsin State Law Library card can do for you.  Be sure to tune in - and get a library card now to get in on the fun.

Sunshine Week: Join the Celebration

Much as we would like to, we cannot guarantee a solid week of sunshine.  But, March 14-20 is designated as Sunshine Week, a national initiative to open a dialogue about the importance of open government and freedom of information. Participants include print, broadcast and online news media, civic groups, libraries, nonprofits, schools and others interested in the public's right to know. The annual observance takes place around March 16, the birthday of James Madison, who was the fourth President of the United States, a staunch advocate of openness in government, and is widely regarded as the "father of the U.S. Constitution."

If you'd like to join the celebration, then consider registering for the 5th Annual Sunshine Week webcast, sponsored by the American Association of Law Libraries and OpenTheGovernment.org.
