S.F. Law Library needs a temporary space

“Former San Francisco City Attorney Louise Renne has a wealth of resources at her fingertips as one of the city’s top lawyers. But when she needed to research the legislative history of a 40-year-old state law for a recent case, the San Francisco Law Library was the only local source. “It plays an important role,” she said. “There are many times when the ability to find documents that aren’t otherwise available is essential.” Every county in California has a law library, run independently from the regular public libraries. For small law firms, advocacy groups, public-interest lawyers, government agencies and citizens representing themselves, law libraries are vital, advocates say. The San Francisco Law Library offers free access to expensive online legal resources such as LexisNexis and Westlaw, along with more than 250,000 law books and free assistance from eight reference librarians.”
