The Oregon Legal Research (OLR) Blog explores the world through the minds of Oregon public law librarians. Legal research tips, advice to the legal blawger/blogger, commentary on reading material, not a small amount of humor, and a few digressions will be included.

This information is for the Fiscal Year 2012-2013 (that ends June 30, 2013). Oregon State Courts and State Government Offices will be closed for employee furloughs on Friday, January
