Time to Change Clocks!

Don't forget to reset all your clocks this weekend. Fall back one hour and gain an "extra" hour of study time (or just sleep in). Officially, 15 USC 260a states the change happens this Sunday at 2 am. Library access hours will remain the same.

New Supreme Court Term Begins Today

As we mentioned in this month's ASL Library News, the U.S. Supreme Court begins its October term today. No arguments are scheduled to be heard today, though, because of the Yom Kippur holiday.

For more information about the Supreme Court, see the High Court's own web page.

We think the famous Washington Post Supreme Court quiz will be printed tomorrow. Here is one from 2004 and one from 2001.

Updated (Tuesday, October 3): No sign of this year's quiz, but here are some prior Washington Post quizzes:
* 2004
* 2003
* 2002
* 2001
* 1999
* 1998

* Lexis has the rest of the archival Supreme Quizzes (1995-1997, 2000) in the Washington Post database.
