NV Supreme Court Offers Lexis Digital Library Online Access

The Nevada Supreme Court Law Library now offers access to the Lexis Digital Library (LDL) at no cost to you!

The Nevada Supreme Court Law Library now offers access to the Lexis Digital Library (LDL) at no cost to you! LDL is a collection of legal treatises and primary sources such as:  

  • Michie’s Nevada Revised Statute’s Annotated
  • Nevada Civil Practice Manual
  • Larson’s Workers Compensation
  • Corbin on Contracts
  • Family Law & Practice
  • Water and Water Rights
  • And dozens more

You can check out up to 5 volumes at a time and keep them for 7 days. You can also add items to a holds list so that you can access them once the current user’s loan period has expired. If you need the book after your loan period has ended, you can also put a hold on it to be notified when it becomes available again!

Borrowed e-books may also be read offline with the LDL app (available for iOS and Android). You can also create color-coded highlighting and notes that are visible only to you. You also have the ability to copy or download annotations with citation information for quicker document assembly.

To sign up, or if you have any questions, send an email to reference@nvcourts.nv.gov.  See our Guide (https://nvsctlawlib.libguides.com/LDL) for more information and tips on how to use the LDL features, such as highlighting and annotations.

LibGuides

The Law Library is also happy to announce a more public face to our research guides (https://nvsctlawlib.libguides.com/?b=g&d=a). The librarians have created these guides to assist visitors across the state with researching Nevada law as well as highlighting special parts of our collection.  For those who have never had a chance to visit the Nevada Supreme Court Library in person, we invite you to check out the “About the Nevada Supreme Court Law Library” guide! (https://nvsctlawlib.libguides.com/aboutthelibrary).
