The library will hold a training session focused on the new LexisNexis Digital Library on Thursday, February 27th from 10 a.m. to 11 a.m. in the library's mezzanine. Lexis training is free and qualifies for 1 hour of CLE credit, but it is limited to 20 participants. Please sign up online or call us at (512) 463-1722 to reserve your spot.
The Texas statutes, administrative rules, and local ordinances occasionally adopt, incorporate, or refer to technical codes published by independent organizations. These codes describe scientific and safety standards for structures and discuss specifications for fire safety, electrical systems, plumbing fixtures, construction practices, and many other topics.
The State Law Library frequently receives questions related to these codes. To assist in answering those questions, our librarians have endeavored to compile all of the codes that have been adopted or incorporated by reference in the Texas statutes and in the Texas Administrative Code.
When possible, we link to the codes if they are available online. Unfortunately, some years and editions are not made freely available by their publishers. For these, you may need to consult with your local public library or your city clerk's office.
