Animal Law Resources with Wendy Moore

moorecrop050217Earlier this month the law library launched the pilot episode of a new podcast series, which will serve as an extension of the longstanding newsletter Amicus Briefs. In this pilot episode, the theme of which centered around animals and the rights and laws related to them, law librarian Wendy Moore shared excellent recommendations of library and other resources on the subject. In addition to being head of acquisitions here at the library she is also faculty advisor for UGA’s Speak Out for Species student organization.

As a follow up to the animals episode, we wanted to further share Wendy’s comprehensive list of resources in full so you can easily click through to the various organizations, websites, books and documentaries mentioned in the podcast. Her comments about the documentaries The Paw Project and A Dog Named Gucci were especially moving, so as an added bonus we have embedded these two movie trailers below. You can be certain that future episodes of the podcast will bring Wendy back to share more of her expertise in recommending library resources, so stay tuned!
