If you are an avid U.S. Supreme Court watcher, the U.W. Law Library has a solid collection of resources about the history of the court and its justices. Books are located on level two (call number range KF 8200 to 8500). A research guide, U.S. Supreme Court Justices, will lead you to the library's newest acquisitions. And for handy, electronic access to books, journals, Congressional Research Reports and external sites like OYEZ and SCOTUS Blog, consult Hein Online's U.S. Supreme Court Library.
Once the nomination process begins, library database services such as ProQuest Congressional or GPO's FDsys will be invaluable in compiling all the proceedings and hearings. For retrospective insights and comparisons, turn once again to Hein Online and the History of Supreme Court Nominations Library.
And be sure to mark your calendar for Thursday April 7 at noon when the Institute for Legal Studies hosts another Supreme Court Roundtable, focusing on Justice Scalia's jurisprudence and legacy.
