New Resources At ACLL – CA Secondary Sources On Lexis Advance

Over the past few months, there have been changes here at law library due to a drop in revenues.  “Re-accommodation” to our hours, staffing, and locations have occurred.  More changes are expected for the next financial year starting in July.  We will keep you posted.

But here is some good news.  After contract re-negotiations by ACLL library administration, we can now offer access on Lexis Advance to many California secondary sources published by Lexis and Matthew Bender at the Alameda County Law Library public computers.

Some of the new titles now available –

  • California Causes of Action
  • California Judge Reviews – detailed biographies of state and federal judges in California.
  • California Legal Forms Transaction Guide – extensive coverage of topics, templates to help begin your drafting
  • California Mechanics’ Lien Law & Practice
  • California Uninsured Motorist Law
  • California Water Law and Policy


Because these practice guides are now available in digital formats,  searchers can request that text be delivered via email or can download to a flash drive avoiding paper printing costs.
