This Year’s Top Titles at UC Clermont Library

Most checked out titles this school year, 2021-2022:

The Bluebook : a uniform system of citation / compiled by the editors of the Columbia Law Review, the Harvard Law Review, the University of Pennsylvania Law Review, and the Yale Law Journal

From the Book’s Preface: The current edition of The Bluebook retains the same basic approach to legal citation established by its predecessors. The layout of the Bluebook has been updated to make the information easier to access. Some citation forms have been expanded, elaborated upon, or modified from previous editions to reflect the ever-expanding range of authorities used in legal writing and to respond to suggestions from the legal community.

Mutual aid : building solidarity during this crisis (and the next) / Dean Spade

Mutual aid is the radical act of caring for each other while working to change the world. Around the globe, people are faced with a spiraling succession of crises, from the Covid-19 pandemic and climate change-induced fires, floods, and storms to the ongoing horrors of mass incarceration, racist policing, brutal immigration enforcement, endemic gender violence, and severe wealth inequality. As governments fail to respond to – or actively engineer – each crisis, ordinary people are finding bold and innovative ways to share resources and support the vulnerable. Survival work, when done alongside social movement demands for transformative change, is called mutual aid. This book is about mutual aid : why it is so important, what it looks like, and how to do it. It provides a grassroots theory of mutual aid, describes how mutual aid is a crucial part of powerful movements for social justice, and offers concrete tools for organizing, such as how to work in groups, how to foster a collective decision-making process, how to prevent and address conflict, and how to deal with burnout. Writing for those new to activism as well as those who have been in social movements for a long time, Dean Spade draws on years of organizing to offer a radical vision of community mobilization, social transformation, compassionate activism, and solidarity.

UC Clermont Library Digital Display – January and February 2021

UC Clermont Library usually curates monthly physical library material displays that pertain to timely issues. You’ve probably seen these throughout campus and maybe even checked out materials from one. For these physical displays we lay out books, DVDs, and periodicals relating to a particular topic. While we are off campus, we wanted to share this same information with you, but in formats accessible from home.

The digital display for January and February 2021 provides online materials with information on burn out, mental health, self-care, and more, so that we can learn about how to take better care of our mental health this semester!
