Texas State Law Library Remote Access Databases


The Texas State Law Library now allows Texas residents to access some of their electronic databases remotely.  Users must sign up for a free library card, either online or in by visiting the library in Austin, to gain access to these resources.  Currently, several sources are available remotely including Loislaw and EBSCO legal resources.  

The Loislaw database includes access to federal and state primary legal materials including cases, statutes, and administrative regulations.  It also contains over 25 Aspen Treatise Libraries such as the Aspen/CCH Bankruptcy Law Library, Elder Law Library, General Litigation Library, and Personal Injury Law Library, which include explanations, forms, and checklists.  Specifically for Texas practitioners, it provides access to Stevenson's Legal Forms & Practice Guide for Texas.  This resource has information for a variety of practice areas including family law, criminal law, collections, probate, real estate, and civil litigation. 

The EBSCO resources include the Legal Information Resource Center and Legal Source.  The Legal Information Resource Center contains legal self-help publications from Nolo Press as well as a variety of state-specific legal forms.  Legal Source provides access to full-text articles from over 1,200 law journals. 

For more information about the Texas State Law Library resources, see their electronic databases page.
