Scholarly Commons on NPR’s Fresh Air

Scholarly Commons, the law library’s institutional repository at W&L, received a mention and praise today on NPR’s Fresh Air.  Host Terry Gross interviewed Linda Greenhouse about her new book, The Burger Court and the Rise of the Judicial Right (with Michael J. Graetz).  Greenhouse names the Powell Papers at W&L as a source for the papers of the Supreme Court Justice Lewis F. Powell, Jr. and praises their ease of accessibility online.

Many thanks to our Special Collections Librarian and Archivist John Jacob and to the law library staff who work on digitizing and adding these collections to Scholarly Commons.

Listen to the full story linked below.  The law library’s mention may be heard at the 25 minute mark.
