Falvey Memorial Library Celebrates National Hispanic Heritage Month

Falvey Memorial Library is celebrating National Hispanic Heritage Month from September 15 to October 15 with a display case on the first floor featuring various literary works from Hispanic authors.

National Hispanic Heritage Month is celebrated annually to recognize the contributions and influence of Hispanic Americans to history, culture, and achievements in the United States. Starting in 1968 under President Lyndon B. Johnson, the celebration was expanded by President Ronald Reagan in 1988 to observe a 30-day period, officially being enacted into law on August 17, 1988.

Not only does Falvey have access to various literary works by Hispanic authors, but for a limited time, you can access policy, legal, and historical information through the Immigration Law & Policy in the U.S. database linked here. This database is included in the HeinOnline database, a subscription provided by the Charles Widger School of Law Library. Database trial ends Sept. 26, 2022.

Be sure to stop by the library and check out the display to gain inspiration for your next read in the spirit of National Hispanic Heritage Month. The display includes:

Also featured in the display is the 2022-23 One Book selection Dear America: Notes of an Undocumented Citizen by Jose Antonio Vargas. Save the date: Villanova University will welcome Vargas to campus to speak on Wednesday, Sept. 28, at 5:30 p.m. in the Villanova Room, Connelly Center, as a part of our annual One Book Villanova Lecture during the St. Thomas of Villanova Celebration. A book signing and light refreshments will follow the talk.

Resource Highlight: Immigration Law and Policy Information

By Merrill Stein

World map.

If you are seeking policy, legal and historical information about immigration, trial access is now available to the Immigration Law & Policy in the U.S. database, included within the already subscribed to HeinOnline database, a subscription courtesy of the Charles Widger School of Law Library.

The database brings together a comprehensive collection of sixteen subcollections about immigration. Select features include scholarly articles focused on immigration law from the HeinOnline law journal library, congressional hearings, Congressional Research Service (CRS) reports, Government Accountability Office (GAO) and Board of Immigration Appeals Precedent Decisions and several immigration-related acts and legislative histories and relevant Supreme Court briefs in 750,000 pages of material. While the database is meant to be a unique set of resources within HeinOnline, some information can also be found elsewhere and within other scholarly resources.

The trial ends September 26, 2022. More information is available at the HeinOnline’s Immigration Law & Policy guide. The immigration database can be accessed in the Falvey Library Databases A-Z list or from within the HeinOnline database, a subscription courtesy of the Charles Widger School of Law Library.
