Wisconsin State Law Library launches new Web site
Madison, Wisconsin - May 11, 2009
The Wisconsin State Law Library today launched its new Web site, including features that make it even easier to locate Wisconsin legal resources.
Popular Legal Topics pages such as divorce and foreclosure let people quickly find the law, relevant articles and books, and the forms they need. For the first time, legal resources from every Wisconsin county will be conveniently available in one location. A new County Resources database offers streamlined access to county departments, forms, procedural guides, sources of legal assistance, court rules and ordinances.
"The new Web site will help people across the state take advantage of the tremendous legal resources available through the State Law Library, said Wisconsin Supreme Court Chief Justice Shirley S. Abrahamson. "Making legal resources more accessible to everyone makes our court system more accessible to everyone," Abrahamson added.
Also new on the Web site is the Request a Document feature, which lets users order copies of opinions and other library materials or request a library book be shipped to them directly. Librarians are ready to answer your questions; the Ask a Librarian link is featured prominently throughout the Web site.
With its newly designed Web site, the Library continues to serve as an outstanding resource for the state’s legal community, government agencies, and to members of the public who need easy access to legal information.Carol Hassler
