Where can I find child custody forms? What are the standard visitation laws in Utah and surrounding states? Are there laws governing the eviction of a tenant? Where can I do legal research on the Internet? How do I contact the Attorney General’s office? Where can I find a copy of Weber County’s ordinances? These and similar questions are fielded every day by the staff at the Weber County Law Library.
The Weber County Law Library was transferred from the Weber County Clerk to the administrative umbrella of the Weber County Library System in January 1989. The transfer allowed the consolidation of all County Library resources and provided for a union catalog of holdings. In 1996, the Law Library moved from its cramped quarters in the old City-County Building to a large suite in the new Weber Center Building. In 2003, the Law Library and its collections were moved to the Main Library to allow for more cost effective services.
In addition to its collection of core legal print resources, the Law Library provides free online access to subscription databases that offer comprehensive coverage of federal and state primary law. Secondary legal resources such as citators, digests, legal encyclopedias, and treatises are also available on the Law Library’s WestlawNext Patron Access terminal. Staff are available to assist patrons in using these and other online resources.
When the Law Library was incorporated into the Weber County Library System, its mission and hours were expanded beyond providing services to court officials, legal professionals, and government employees. It now reaches out to students and the general public. Today, more than three-fourths of all those using the Weber County Law Library are not legal professionals.
While Law Library employees are not professionally trained attorneys and do not have the specialized skills necessary to do definitive legal research, or give legal opinions, they do have sophisticated library research skills and, in some cases, paralegal training.
