table image Welcome to the Ashland County Law Library. We are located on the second floor in the historic courthouse in downtown Ashland, Ohio. We are open to the public Monday through Friday from 8:00 a.m. until 4:00 p.m. and closed for lunch from 12:00 until 1:00 p.m.. All state and federal holidays are observed. We are staffed by a full-time librarian.

The Ashland County Law Library serves the legal and law related information needs of statutory users, including judges, attorneys, and county and municipal officials. The general public is welcome to visit the library and can be directed by the law librarian to particular resources. Our collection is for reference only and may not be checked out by the general public.


Services

The Ashland County Law Library provides a number of resources to our patrons, including access to LexisNexis. We have two conference rooms that can be scheduled in advance. If no group is scheduled, both rooms are available as needed.

Collections

Our book collection consists of over 10,000 bound volumes and a large number of periodicals. The collection is not available to the general public to check out but may be used in the library.

In addition to our print media we offer two legal databases for the use of members of the bar. We have three user stations for accessing primary, secondary and search materials for Federal and Ohio jurisdictions.

Courtroom Aids

The library offers for the use of members of the bar several anatomical charts and medical diagrams for use in the courtroom. We also have a set of bones representing the human spine.

Document Delivery

The library offers free document, book, or search delivery to local members of the bar.

Copying

Patrons may copy and print at no charge.

Online Research

The librarian is pleased to help members of the bar research items online or to schedule Lexis training for you at your convenience.

Librarian Services

Need an obscure article or appellate brief? The librarian maintains a valuable contact with other libraries and other librarians. We have access to enormous databases and can provide you the information you need through email or by actually checking a book out of another library.


Policies

All library patrons are expected to conduct themselves in a manner that is respectful of the normal activities and functions of the Law Library, its staff, and of other patrons. Users who fail to comply with library policy will be asked to leave.

Open To The Public

The law library is open to the public 8:00 am to 4:00 pm on Monday, 8:00 am to noon Tuesday through Thursday, and closed Friday. Please sign in with the librarian upon arrival. No fee is charged to members of the general public for access to the law library. Our space is limited and serves also as a conference room for attorneys and witnesses for the courts. Due to the confidential nature of these meetings members of the public will be asked to step outside during these times.

Reference Services

The Ashland County Law Library staff, as a service to its patrons, provides reference services and information. Books may not be removed from the library by the public. Library staff members do not interpret the law, provide legal advice, or explain court procedures. The information provided is not a substitute for legal advice from a licensed attorney.
