With Congress taking the rare step of opening a formal impeachment inquiry, look to the San Francisco Law Library for resources and books to help you understand more about what impeachment is, how it has worked in history, and how the process might unfold today.

Here at the Law Library, you can read scholarly interpretations of the impeachment clause, and it’s history, as reviewed by The Library’s reference team members:
