Crime Victims' Rights
Every April, the U.S. Office for Victims of Crime (OVC) leads communities throughout the country in their annual observances of National Crime Victims' Rights Week (NCVRW) which is being held from April 7-13. The theme for this year's event is -- "Honoring Our Past. Creating Hope for the Future". View some of the materials that we have on display near the 2nd Floor south library entrance of Marx Library.
America's Wild Horses and Burros
The Wild Free-Roaming Horses and Burros Act of 1971 directs the protection and management of wild horses and burros on public lands, under the auspicious of the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) and the U.S. Forest Service. One of the most noteworthy aspect of this program is its adoption program. To date, BLM has placed more than 240,000 wild horses and burros into private care since its beginning. To learn more about this program, see our display on 2nd Floor South and checkout the handout which lists some or our resources on this topic.
Three Mile Island Accident
Before there was Fukushima (Japan, 2011) and Chernobyl (Russia, 1986) …
There was the Three Mile Island [TMI-1] accident (PA, USA)
Forty years ago, the most significant accident in U.S. commercial nuclear power plant history occurred on March 28, 1979 at the Three Mile Island Nuclear Generating Station (TMI-2). The partial meltdown of reactor no. 2 occurred due to a series of failures, both mechanical and by human operators. The accident galvanized anti-nuclear activists and the general public, resulting in new regulations for the nuclear industry. Currently on display on 2nd Floor South are some of our resources highlighting this event.
