American Injustice: Mercy, Humanity, and Making a Difference

We can use the law to do the things that motivated us to want to be near the law in the first place which is to create justice. But to do so, it requires us to be proximate, it requires us to work on the narratives, it requires us to stay hopeful, and it …
Waking up early on a Sunday morning for me is brutal.  Somehow, my brain is ingrained with the idea that if I must wake up early on Sunday, there better be a good reason for it, a… http://rclawlibrary.org/community/blog/2017/08/american-injustice-mercy-humanity-and-making-difference/

Leave Granny Alone!

Once a person asked  me why I work at a law library.  As he put it, "It must be the most boring place in the world!"  Turns out, it is the most dichotomous career I know of which … http://rclawlibrary.org/community/blog/2016/07/leave-granny-alone/

Inspiration

I’ve been in a slump lately. I’m not sure if it’s because it is summer and the law library is quiet or if it’s just general ennui but I have plenty of projects to work on and not a whole lot of drive to get it done.

We've got that

If it's law or legal or even a distant cousin to something that was once legal, odds are your local county law library has what you need somewhere inside its four walls.
I don't know if you know but did you know that the top three questions at most any county law library are Were are the bathrooms? Where are the copiers? Where are the forms … http://rclawlibrary.org/community/blog/2015/07/weve-got/

Librarians know it all

Sometimes it may seem like your local county law librarian is wandering aimlessly around the stacks but know that what we're doing is looking and thinking about what you need or just asked us about so that you don't have to look dazed and confused.
Have you ever had the experience where you find yourself standing somewhere and you can't remember why you're standing there?  See, the other day, I was helping no less than 8 peo… http://rclawlibrary.org/community/blog/2015/06/librarians-know-it-all/

Lexis vs. West

It’s no secret that in the world of legal publishing there are two big competitors, LexisNexis and Thomson Reuters (Westlaw). Both have things they do really well. I’d be lost without California Forms of Pleading and Practice (thank you Lexis)! Then we ha…

Easy Peasy

There are two ways to do legal research: do it yourself or find someone who knows how to do it (like your friendly neighborhood law Librarian).
The thing with legal research is that once you know the basics, it is pretty easy.  I mean you have two primary tools for finding things (which you have been using for like foreve… http://rclawlibrary.org/community/blog/2015/08/easy-peasy/

Mine Today, Yours Tomorrow

Even if you own the land, it can still be taken from you if you are not a vigilant land owner. Protect your land and yourself and keep that grass mowed (so that people at least think you live there).
Few things bother me more that when people come up to me asking about "squatter's rights."  I don't know.  Maybe it's because I own a home and the thought of coming home after a v… http://rclawlibrary.org/community/blog/2015/03/here-today-gone-tomorrow/

Don't Do It

Just because the front door to your local county public law library says the word "PUBLIC" on it doesn't mean you can walk out the front door with anything you want. If you didn't buy it or it wasn't given to you, it's not yours to do as you wish.
Love my job, I do.  What I don't like all that much is seeing materials walk out the library.  Well, I mean, it doesn't just sprout legs, get up, and walk out the front door of it… http://rclawlibrary.org/community/blog/2015/02/dont-do-it/

Oldies but Goodies

Your local county law library has some powerful about the United States and California Constitution(s) in its stacks for you to use and peruse
In a recent delivery to our Indio Branch, a small yet powerful paperback arrived.  It was The Constitutions of California and the United States, Ref. KFC 679.U55. Yes, you can fin… http://rclawlibrary.org/community/blog/2014/12/oldies-goodies/
