Using the Library

The Law Libraries are staffed by professional librarians who can assist you with finding print and electronic legal resources. Please be aware that library staff cannot provide legal advice or interpretation of legal materials.

Borrowing materials
Licensed attorneys, judges and Dakota County Government employees may borrow books and other print items.  Most items are available for a 5-day loan.

Other residents cannot borrow books and print items.

Electronic databases
You cannot connect to the electronic databases from outside the library.  Westlaw can be used only in the library.

Photocopiers are available to make single-sided copies. Cost is 15 cents per page for black and white and 50 center per page for color.

Computer printouts
Computer printouts are also 15 cents per page.

Fax copies are 25 cents per page—incoming and outgoing. Faxes can only be sent to local phone numbers.

Please do not send court documents or pleadings for filing to the Law Library. They can’t be filed by the Library.

The fax number is 651-438-8098.
