Many people come to the Reference Desk looking for information such as how to change a business’ name, draft a will or healthcare Power of Attorney, or understand landlord/tenant disputes. We often help people access our wide range of NOLO reference books to get understandable answers to everyday legal and business questions.
But we also have some very helpful online legal resources that you can access from home through our website:
- Ohio Legal Forms - offers access to thousands of Ohio legal forms, including business, personal, real estate and general forms covering hundreds of legal subjects and issues.
- Gale Encyclopedia of Everyday Law - provides information on common legal issues, from civil rights to real estate, providing historical background, important statutes and cases, profiles of U.S. laws and regulations, and details of how these laws and regulations vary from state to state.
To access these online resources, go to databases.ualibrary.org. Use the drop-down menu on the left hand side to Select a Database Topic and choose ‘Law and Government.’
Of course, reference librarians are super smart, but can’t provide legal expertise or counsel! However, we can also help you find an attorney using the Best Lawyers in America.
