Library Spotlight

In the wake of COVID-19, tenants facing eviction cases and homeowners struggling to make their mortgage payments can find information and assistance through new tools created by legal aid providers across Texas. Here’s a look at several of these new tools.

On Friday, May 8th, the Office of Court Administration's network was hit with a ransomware attack. To limit the extent of the attack, OCA took many systems offline, including our website. We are slowly restoring our website.

Access to certain library databases (e.g., HeinOnline, AILALink, Fastcase) is currently unavailable.

We are happy to announce that library patrons can now access Westlaw Edge and Lexis Advance from home! Thank you to both Thomson Reuters and Lexis for helping us make legal information accessible to all Texans.

During the COVID-19 outbreak there are various types of legal problems that people may encounter. The State Law Library has created a Disasters and Emergencies legal research guide to help assist Texans in navigating some of those issues.
