Help! I Don’t Know Where to Start.


You will no doubt discover at times that you know absolutely nothing about the legal subject you need to research. (Even experienced practitioners find themselves in this predicament.) An ideal place to start would be in one of West's Nutshell Series. There are more than 115 titles in the Nutshell Series, and each is a concise treatise on one of more than 70 legal topics, such as product liability, evidence and taxation.

The Legislative Library has many Nutshell Series titles and they are on display this month.   Come by and check out what we have!

Celebrate Women's History Month!

President Obama recently issued a proclamation declaring March to be Women’s History Month.  The Proclamation highlights the contributions women have made to our Nation, and honors those who blazed trails for women's empowerment and equality.

For more information about Women’s History Month and the achievements of American women, visit the Library of Congress website and the Women’s History Month website.

To learn more about the vital role and accomplishments of women in North Carolina's history, visit the State Library of North Carolina's website.

North Carolina Census 2010

The United States Constitution requires that a census be taken every 10 years, so it’s that time again!
 Beginning in March 2010, census forms will be delivered to every residence in the United States and Puerto Rico.  When you receive yours, just answer the 10 short questions and mail the form back in the postage-paid envelope provided. If you don't mail the form back, you might receive a visit from a census taker, who will ask you the questions from the form.

Go to the North Carolina Census 2010 and United State Census 2010 websites for comprehensive Census information, including information about Census-based financial and political benefits conferred on states.
