All that Glitters

If you know how to do it properly, doing your legal reseach online is awesome and fast. The problem is that (contrary to popular believe in the acdemic world) not everyone that good, helpful, and useful is online (i.e. only available in print).
Picture it.  You're writing (or about to start writing) a legal document and all of a sudden you get writers block.  What do you do?  Well, if you're like me, you go take a nap or…

What was lost has been found

Some of the best resources available at your local county law library (i.e. the RCLL) have been buried or squirreled away. Good thing there are Librarians (like those at the RCLL) who are adept at finding things and are able to bring to light resources t…
You know what's great about the new year?  It's a chance for renewal.  Spring cleaning for the soul, is what it is.  Recently, the RCLL has been working on it's own soul-searching…

It's a goldmine!

Sometimes, it's the resources that no one uses that proves to be the most worth. AmJur Proof of Facts is one of those full of actual proofs presented in court, POF offers users everything practitioners need to develop a case and offer evidence into court…
Having served as a public services law Librarian for going on 13 years, I have discovered some pretty cool resources that help people win (or not lose (there is a difference)) the…

You need it, We've got it

O'Brien's is a kind of like a crystal ball in that it is a good predictor of whether your case has any value (i.e. money) based on your set of facts
One of the things I like to do, as a law Librarian, is to peruse the book stacks here at the Riverside County Law Library.  Many times I'll see things I've never seen before and, …

Exploring the Past at the Library

Among the more commonly used legal resources at the law library are access to historical documents and cases
The Riverside County Law Library is a place many history buffs might never think to go. In fact, all three of our locations offer a wonderful variety of historic documents and inf…

Law Library Finds

While looking for a book in the library, I came across a book that caught my eye: Attacking and Defending Drunk Driving Tests. Certainly not an upbeat topic, but this book makes it an interesting one. Even though my first skim was only a few minutes long,…

Books, Books and more Books

One of the best things about being a law Librarian is the fact that I have thousands of great resources to look at, browse through, or just rub shoulders with.
One of the great things about being a law Librarian in a law library is that I have access to THOUSANDS (that's right, thousands) of legal resources to browse through.  Picture it…

You Gotta See This

Not just another arbor (tree) law book. Here you can read about the codes related to forestry law. If nothing else, it's a great read and can easily put your kids to sleep at night.
The other day I had a guy come into the library.  A bit confused by all the thick books, he asks me if we (the law library) has any books about ships or shipping.  Thinking a bit …
