Our staff serves as research facilitators available to help you find resources in our collection, legal databases, and community sources that may enable you to conduct your own research or information addressing your legal concern.

Staff cannot help fill out forms, provide legal advice, or comment or explain the meaning of the material.
We are a reference library only and material does not circulate outside the law library.
The Council of California County Law Librarians offers a mini-guide to help you learn the legal research process with guidance on where to start and what resources to check as you research your legal issue. The American Association of Law Libraries also provides its resource on How to Research a Legal Problem: A Guide for Non-Lawyers.
