Law Library

The State Library of Pennsylvania Law Library has an extensive collection consisting of the laws, regulations, and higher court decisions of the U.S. government and all fifty states which can be searched through the State Library Catalog.

The State Library also subscribes to many government, law and code electronic resources. Online access to these resources is available in the Main Reading Room or by remote access to active State Government employees with a current State Library card.  The laws and administrative codes of all fifty states are available in the State Capitol Universe database. This collection is especially strong in current and historical Pennsylvania law materials, and includes Pennsylvania appellate court records and briefs, legal treatises and periodicals, and Pennsylvania county court reports.
