The law library no
longer subscribes to Westlaw. While the online access will go away, the
law library will still receive Westlaw’s print subscriptions. This is a
temporary change and hopefully the library will be able to subscribe to
Westlaw’s online content in the near future. Lexis will still be available
on the patron computer. The law library also now offers access to PACER,
which is available during staffed library hours.
The Linn County
Law Library recently received a $41,000.00 grant for the operation and
maintenance of an eviction prevention clinic in Linn County, Oregon and its

may want to contact the Community Services
Consortium, Legal Aid Services of Oregon, Neighbor-to-Neighbor Mediation, the Fair Housing
