New Resource: Legal Information Reference Center

The navigation of legal issues can be difficult and complicated. EBSCO’s Legal Information Reference Center aims to uncomplicate these challenges with handy guides and access to forms. Here’s a description from Arlene Weible at the Oregon State Library:

The State of Oregon Law Library has purchased EBSCO’s Legal Information Reference Center. This resource is accessible from any browser, any location, within the borders of the state of Oregon. People do not need to come to a library for access.

This service contains a large number of NOLO legal reference books and various legal forms. NOLO publications are books on common legal topics aimed at non-lawyers. The NOLO books are a good resource for people looking to get a handle on common legal problems.

Oregonians simply go to the link, enter their county of residence for their “patron id” and “oregon” as the password. Neither is case sensitive.

Libraries are free to link this great legal resource to your website and encourage people to use it. If people need more assistance with this and other legal resources they can contact their local county law library or the State Law Library.
