The online catalogs in the library and on our Web site provide a quick and easy Windows-based index to the print and non-print materials in the library's collection. Through the online catalogs you can determine whether the library owns a particular work, where it is located, and whether it is out in circulation or on the shelf. Any work may be found if the subject, author, or title is known.
Subscribers of the library may also take advantage of free in-library use of Lexis and Westlaw state and federal libraries and of both Shepard's via Lexis and KeyCite via Westlaw. Weekly passwords for Loislaw are also available for check-out. Loislaw is an Internet-based legal research system that may be searched wherever the member has Internet access. The library also circulates an IBM ThinkPad laptop computer to subscribers. Please call the library at 330-643-2804 for details.
