The Law Library has an extensive collection of current and historical print materials.  Anyone may search our catalog. Just click on Online Catalog.  Materials may be used on-site.  Subscribers and county officials do have borrowing privileges.

Highlights of the collection include Ohio practice handbooks and other Ohio materials, historical Ohio statutory and case law, law reviews, current treatises in many practice areas, CLE booklets, and so much more.  The collection is arranged by the Library of Congress classification system and is fully represented in the Law Library's catalog.
