Online Services

The Law Library offers public Internet access to aid in legal research on its computer terminals. Access to the Internet is free of charge, however, there is a charge for printing. When there is heavy computer traffic, a one hour time limit may be enforced, so please keep in mind that others may be waiting.

In addition to general Internet access, the library offers several premium online services free of charge.


Patrons are able to retrieve federal cases and codes, along with cases and codes from all 50 states. Law Journals from all 50 states are also available. Also on Westlaw ALR, AmJur2d, & California Practice Guides: The Rutter Group


California Forms of Pleading and Practice, California Legal Forms, and California Probate Practice among others are available in digital form through our LexisNexis Digital Library. You can also access this wherever you have access to the internet – just ask for a member of the law library staff to create a user ID for you.


Ask a staff member to give you digital access on one of our computer terminals and you can review the most up to date versions of CEB’s publications, including Jefferson on Evidence, California Conservatorship Practice, California Guardianship Practice, and more.

Printing from the computers is now .15 cents per page, payable only in cash.
