IBSC Student Forum 2017- International Boys' Schools Coalition Join boys from around the globe to attend the IBSC Student Forum to explore the theme of Beyond Discovery: Investigation and Progress, which complements the theme of the concurrent IBSC Annual Conference for school leaders.

Rather than focus narrowly on solutions, investigate these topics from multiple angles and gather perspectives from different groups with varying viewpoints.

An Evaluation of the New Deal At the time of its construction during the Great Depression, the Hoover Dam was the largest in the world. To this day, it uses the power of the Colorado River to electrify the region. How effective was the New Deal at addressing the problems of the Great Depression?

Is it Time for Law Libraries to Collaborate on Description for Their Own Institutions’ Legal Scholarship? Over the past couple of years, there has been a great deal of discussion — particularly in relation to the Durham Statement [1] — about technical standards and preservation issues for law reviews that publish openly and exclusively online. Other colleagues have already blogged or written more formally about the lack of metadata being produced in the production of law reviews, and about problems in indexing open access law journal literature. [2] In a previous VoxPopuLII post, Dr. Núria Casellas discussed the significance of semantic enhancement and how it affects how we should be thinking about providing access to legal information.

Securities and Exchange Commission - Facts & Summary To bring order out of chaos, Congress passed three major acts creating the Securities and Exchange Commission,SEC,and defining its responsibilities. The Securities Act of 1933 required public corporations to register their stock sales and distribution and make regular financial disclosures. The Securities Exchange Act of 1934 created theSEC to regulate exchanges, brokers, and over-the-counter markets, as well as to monitor the required financial disclosures. The 1935 Public Utility Holding Company Act did away with holding companies more than twice removed from the utilities whose stocks they held. This “death sentence” ended the practice of using holding companies to obscure the intertwined ownership of public utility companies.

Audio and Video Sources From game labs to recording studios, libraries are finding creative ways to provide audio and video production hardware, software, and spaces for users.
