OK, the election is over, and between now and Inauguration Day (January 20th, 2009) President-Elect Barack Obama has a lot of work to do and decisions to make before assuming his duties as our 44th President.
You can track his transition to the White House at Change.gov, the Office of the President-Elect’s web site. Read the blog, watch weekly web video addresses, send Obama and his transition teams your advice, read bios of Obama, Biden, appointees, and more.
Your University Library has two books by Obama if you’d like to learn more about him: The audacity of hope: thoughts on reclaiming the American dream and Dreams from my father: a story of race and inheritance. If UWW’s copies are checked out, students and staff may borrow copies from other UW libraries using the free Universal Borrowing service. Requested items arrive in 2-4 weekdays. You can also use Library article databases such as Biography Reference Bank Select Edition (WilsonWeb) to search for additional information.
Please ask a reference librarian if you’d like some assistance in finding materials.
The University Library is a federal depository with many federal, state, local, and international documents on a variety of current and relevant issues available to you in print, microfiche, CD-ROM, and electronically. Come check out your government at the University Library!
