Finding "What is Ideology" by Jacques Derrida

A student came to the reference desk with a link from her professor to find an article titled, "What is Ideology" by Jacques Derrida. The professor provided an incorrect link. If anyone else is asking, the article can be found at:

From the list on the left side of the screen, select Derrida, Spectres of Marx. That link has the correct article.

Find your legislator assignment

I get this assignment at the reference desk every semester, and have already had one ambitious student asking how to find the information. Perhaps a throwback assignment to when it was necessary to use reference books for this, but the assignment is simply for the student to find the state senators and assemblymen and federal senators and representatives for their hometown. Although this information is easily found online (easily, maybe only for librarians??), students seem to have a lot of questions about how to find it!!

I've put together this webpage with links to get them started on their search. Although the right Google search will take them directly to the information they need, I've included links to the homepages so that they have to do a teeny bit of searching and website evaluation to get the answers. Feel free to give the tiny URL out to students if they will find it useful.
