Abstract (Document Summary)
No less than the U.S. Supreme Court described a library as "a place dedicated to quiet, to knowledge and to beauty ... [a place] to inquire, to study, to evaluate ... to literally explore the unknown and discover areas of interest. ..." The libraries that present these collections include large university libraries, law school and other departmental libraries, small college libraries, public libraries, and school libraries-demonstrating not only libraries responding to the demand for information on these issues, but also the dedication of skilled librarians in meeting that demand. Living History and The Art of the Deal Penn State University Libraries and Georgia State University's University Library have resource guides focusing on the 2016 election process and outcome. There is also a selection of books and other materials on the democratic process: treatises and tomes on politics and democracy, books on House of Cards and Veep, Living History by Hillary Clinton and The Art of the Deal by Donald Trump, etc. The University of Washington School of Law's Gallagher Law Library has a guide, Presidential Power, that offers information about the president's relationships with the branches of government, limitations on presidential power, and the president and the Constitution. Interestingly, the FBI Library has a sizable collection of LibGuides on criminal issues such as domestic violence, cybercrime, gangs, intelligence analysis, and terrorism.
