What Do You Know About Public Law Libraries? A Reading List


Here in Oregon we are in a strange sort of campaign for continued county law library funding. If you would like to weigh in on the subject, but don’t know anything about the business of public law libraries, you need to do a little research.

Public law libraries have management and service profiles, and demands, that are different from academic (law school) and law firm libraries, sometimes hugely different.

You can talk to your county law librarian if you have one, you can talk to me, or, you can do some independent reading.

In true librarian fashion, I created a Reading List to get you started – how’s that for service?!

Public Law Libraries: A Selected Reading List

The original purpose of this Reading List was to educate our Oregon non-law librarian and non-librarian advocates, committee members, and stakeholders who wanted to learn how public law libraries in Oregon and around the country operate.

I update this Reading List as new reports come out and welcome suggestions.
