The Ohio Supreme Court Law Library is celebrating National Library Week April 8-14. It’s a great time to visit the library and get reacquainted with all the resources it offers.

National Library Week is celebrated to help motivate people to read as well as support and use local libraries. This year’s theme is “You belong @ your library.” The first National Library Week was observed in 1958.

The Ohio Supreme Court Law Library offers access to Lexis, Westlaw, HeinOnline and other databases for visitors at public terminals. The court’s librarians also offer research assistance in person, by phone or via email libref@sc.ohio.gov.

“Our knowledgeable staff can help you with a variety of tasks including locating a case, getting an Ohio Supreme Court brief, and obtaining the prior version of an Ohio law,” said Erin Waltz, library public services manager at the court. 

Waltz said the law library also has a large collection of treatises that can be checked out by residents with an Ohio Supreme Court library card. Cards can be obtained for free at the library.
