We are happy to announce the arrival of COVID-19 in America: Response, Issues, and Law, a new database available to our patrons through HeinOnline. This database is incredibly helpful for anyone seeking credible research and information on new developments related to COVID-19's impact. 

On July 26th, 1990, the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) [PDF] was signed into law by President George H.W. Bush. 30 years later, we celebrate the passage of this historic law and take a look at some of the resources on disability law included in the SLL's collection.

When state and local governments began to require face masks to slow the spread of COVID-19, we received a flood of questions on what the law says about wearing a mask in various situations. From carrying a gun to reporting a mask violation, here's a look at some of the more common questions about masks we've gotten from library patrons.

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