Legal Research Resources for Self-represented litigants

Legal research can be difficult.  Law librarians can provide insight and guidance on the process but sometimes patrons need an in-depth guide that will walk them through the proce…

Look What You’ve Been Missing

The three branches of the Riverside County Law Library have so much to offer. We have a wealth of legal information available – State and Federal Statutes, Codes and Regulations, …

What was lost was (almost) found

Sometimes when you look long and hard enough you can find whatever it is you are looking for. Sometimes, however, even if you look long and hard and have a great library assistant at the Riverside County Law Library helping you, you can't find whatever i…
Isn't it amazing what you can find if you look hard (or long) enough?  Take for example the gentleman recently visited our Indio branch with a very straight forward request (well,…

We looked (almost) everywhere

Librarians may not always find what we're looking for right when we need to find it, but that doesn't mean we stop looking. Leave us your email so that when we find whatever it was you were searching for so that we can send it to you - because we'll find…
What a day!  Some days we get maybe 4-5 people asking anything from how to not get evicted to how to file a class action lawsuit.  Today, I got hammered with well over a dozen que…

Rockin' to the Oldies

While the RCLL does have a number of great up-to-date materials available to be used and perused, the we also have a number of titles that, while awesome and helpful, are a bit on the geriatric side.
What were you doing in 1980?  While many who are reading this post weren't even born yet, I had just started my freshman year in high school.  Other things that happened in 1980 i…

We've Got Some Great Cheat Sheets

Some of the best cheat sheets in life can be found at your local county law library. So come on over and let us help you help you.
Do you remember the first day of the first job you ever had?  Were you a wizard at what you were doing?  Was there a learning curve?  Did you wish you had a cheat sheet or somethi…

More Forms than you can Count!

If you need a legal form, look no further than and download all the forms you can stand.
Believe it or not, our Indio branch gets a number of interesting (and fun) reference questions.  In fact, I had a patron walk into the library the other day upset over having just…

Learn all you can at the RCLL

The Riverside County Law Library is scheduling programs for all of its patrons. From the lowly pro se litigant who knows little or nothing about legal research to the dyed in the wool legal eagle who need everything from self-study MCLE to live programs,…
Did you know that the Riverside County Law Library ("RCLL") regularly schedules programs for both attorneys and non-attorneys?  Sure, we do. For non-attorneys, our Legal Resea…

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…

Lawyers in the Library

Free 20 minute consultations with an attorney, offered monthly at the Indio Branch of the Riverside County Law Library.
Have you ever:   Needed help completing a court form? Had a procedural question? Just not know where to begin with a (legal) situation?   Then a trip to the Indio B…

"Can I get legal advice at a law library?"

Legal advice refers to written or oral counsel about a legal matter that would affect the rights and responsibilities of the person receiving the advice.
Is there someone at the law library who can advise what I should do in my case?  Short answer is, no. What you are asking is whether library staff can give you legal advice in you…

Find it on HeinOnline has created a series of "how-to-use-HeinOnline" videos covering everything from how to create a MyHein account, navigating Hein’s congressional documents collection, retrieving case law, and how to conduct a legislative intent search,
Recently, I was tasked with reviewing the series of videos created for HeinOnline’s YouTube channel.  These videos were designed as a crash course in navigating Hein’s…

Bon Appetit

As with most all things, your local county law Librarians knows how to serve up whatever you need faster than any mere mortal could ever hope for and can show you how to find it, too!
So, I'm grazing the recent news offerings and, catching my attention, I see an article entitled, "10 chef secrets: What happens to bread, and what not to order and more."  Some of…

Oldies but Goodies

Just because it's been sitting on the shelves in like forever doesn't mean it's an old/worthless resource. Like a fine wine, many books at your local county law library get better (and more applicable) with age.
They're back.  Fox Mulder and Dana Skully are at it again with their conspiracy theories and alien abductions.  Man but those were the days.  Of course, I'm talking about the days…

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…

Spring Has Sprung

Spring time is here and what better time that no (right now) than to visit our new Indio Branch library with new furniture, new computers and that new library smell and is located on the first floor of the County Law Building at 82-995 Highway 111 in Indi…
Springtime is a time of new beginnings.  Time for rebirth, rejuvenation, and renewal.  Time to clean out the cobwebs in your mind (Does anyone even do spring cleaning anymore)? …

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…
