Legal Resources for You and Your Patrons: Introducing the People's Law Library of Iowa (Live Webinar)

Nov 17, 2022, 10:00 AM – 11:00 AM

Do you struggle to know how to respond when patrons approach the desk with legal questions? Have you been looking for a centralized repository of legal information? There are two main components to this session to help you better serve your patrons with those tricky kinds of questions. The first part will be an introduction to a new resource from the State Library of Iowa and the University of Iowa Law School: The People's Law Library of Iowa. This website makes it a snap to answer patrons' questions in three major categories: landlord-tenant law, consumer law, and family law. In the second part of the hour, presenters will cover the structure of federal, state and municipal laws and how they interact. In addition to the People's Law Library, we'll also consider and explain other main sources of online legal information for Iowans.
