The free, high-speed wireless Internet is now available on all three
floors of the library, including the Grimes conference room. Law Librarian Mary
Searles said wireless adds more access points to the Internet without adding
more wired computers and frees up the computer lab for patrons using the
library's LexisNexis database.
“ Wireless connection is a
great tool that will increase our patrons’ access to online legal research
sources,” Searles said.
Wireless will also improve the overall accessibility and usage of the
library’s connection to information. “Professionals can bring in their
personal devices and stay connected, law students can bring in their laptops and
work on projects while sitting in a quiet corner, “ Searles said.
The New Hampshire Law Library is the state’s only public law library.
It contains 94,000 volumes of legal materials.
In addition, it contains New Hampshire laws, court decisions, court rules
and other related legal resources for New Hampshire.
The library dates back to 1716 when the first collection of law books was
organized. The law library is a
research library; the law books cannot be checked out.
