December 2021 New Resources

In December 2021, the Law Library added the following new resources to the collection to support the research and curricular needs of our faculty and students.

New Resources

Bremer-Kovacs Collection:  Historic Documents Related to the Administrative Procedure Act of 1946 – A new comprehensive collection from HeinOnline, designed to make the APA’s history more accessible and understandable. The Collection begins in 1929 with the APA’s first predecessors: bills to regulate administrative procedure that were introduced in Congress but never enacted. The Collection’s coverage expands in 1933, tracking heightened interest in administrative reform following President Roosevelt’s first inauguration and spurred on by the New Deal expansion of the federal administrative apparatus. The Collection includes a comprehensive legislative history of the Walter-Logan Bill of 1940, which Congress approved but President Roosevelt vetoed, as well as later bills that culminated in the Administrative Procedure Act of 1946 (APA).
