The Peggy Helmerich Library will be closed temporarily for light renovation. We anticipate the closure to last several weeks. During the closure, any items you have placed on hold will be sent to Hardesty Library.
The University of Oklahoma Institute for the American Constitutional Heritage (IACH) is dedicated to promoting civic education through short, topical, online talks related to citizenship, freedom, and the Constitution. In order to fulfill its mission the IACH offers a variety of lectures and online courses offered by OU professors focused on civic and constitutional issues. Among the lessons available is a 10 episode quick course exploring the Second Amendment: http://freedom.ou.edu/category/quickcourse/ (also available through iTunes).
What a timely subject as our legislators for the first time since the 1990s begin an earnest debate of gun control. The IACH quick course is intended to inform rational civil discourse about the second amendment, typically a highly charged topic. Take the opportunity to learn more of this issue and engage with others, including your legislators.
