The Library's mission is to serve the bench, the bar, and the public by providing professional library services. The library staff can provide directional, bibliographic and reference assistance. However, the staff is prohibited from rendering any advice, opinion, or interpretation of the law. The user is expected to make his/her own determination of the use of the information found. The Richmond County Supreme Court Library is a non-lending reference library. However, the Judges of the Richmond Supreme Court may borrow items and any items borrowed must be properly checked out. The policy for using the computers and/or the microform reader/printers is on a first come first serve basis. Users are requested to sign in and must advise the librarian before seeking to use the computers and/or microform reader/printers. Access to computer assisted legal research (e.g. Lexis, Westlaw) and other legal resources is available on the Library's public access PCs. In addition to the usual legal reference materials, the Library's holdings include a large number of pre-National Reporter system cases unavailable online or in microform.
Visitors must pass through a magnetometer prior to entering the facilities.
