The Nebraska Supreme Court has added the ability to access the JUSTICE Court Case Search to the public access computer terminals in the State Law Library. The online system is designed to allow easy access to information about court cases throughout Nebraska. Individual users can search for parties statewide using a password provided by the State Law librarian.
This service is in addition to the Westlaw research capabilities provided at the public terminal. The State Library offers the only publicly accessible computer inside the State Capitol. It also provides an important way for the Court to continue to fulfill its mission to preserve and promote access to a broad range of legal information and ideas.
Permanently located on the third floor of the State Capitol, the Nebraska State Law Library is primarily a reference research library managed by the Nebraska Supreme Court. Computer access is located at the front of the main room, directly across from the check-out desk.
The computer station contains word processing (Microsoft Word), Westlaw legal research, a list of the Librarian’s favorite sites for research, and an open portal to the Internet. Patrons can print information at a minimal cost, use web based e-mail to send information to another location for printing, or copy information directly to a jump/flash drive.
In addition, the State Law Library offers wireless internet access to all patrons.
