What books are available at the library?

We have a library catalog with thousands of titles from a variety of legal publishers, but our library staff will be happy to help you find the two or three most fitting to your question.

Our collection includes:

*Past and present Oregon laws and legislative history resources, and United State Code and Regulations.

*Treatises, legal dictionaries, form books, and legal encyclopedias.

*Self-help law books from Nolo and National Consumer Law Center (NCLC).

What resources are on your public computers?

The Law Library subscribes to three legal databases:

*Westlaw - cases, statutes, Keyciting (case validation), and some secondary materials.

*HeinOnline - law review articles, federal legislative history, and historic legal materials.

*BarBooks - attorney practice guides and deskbooks published by the Oregon State Bar.

In addition, Microsoft Word is installed on public computers, for drafting court documents.

Can I copy, call, fax, or print in your library?

Yes, all of the above. The library has a public phone (local calls only). We also have copy, printing, and faxing services available for current county rates.

What else can I do at the library?

The library strives to be a quiet space to conduct legal research, prepare for court, or meet with others in the meeting room, which can be reserved in advance.
