Earlier this year, I blogged about a new program at the Texas State Law Library that allows Texas residents to access some of the library’s legal databases remotely. Now the Texas State Law Library is providing Texas residents with access to a number of Matthew Bender ebooks. The ebooks cover a variety of legal topics such as family law, criminal law, civil procedure, contracts, estate planning, and oil and gas, many of which are specific to Texas law. For a list of all titles, see the collection’s website.
As with the library’s electronic databases, to gain access to these resources, you must have a library account. You can set up an account in person in Austin or you can set up an account online. However, accounts set up online need to be renewed every three months. For more information about library accounts, see the Texas State Law Library website.
