Kudos to the Wisconsin State Law Library on their newly redesigned website. Note that this is just a sneak peek. The new site will go live soon.

From the WSLL @ Your Service newsletter:

With its natural colors and clean lines, the new site reflects the aesthetics of the library. Along with a new style, the website features accessible, neatly arranged information, allowing users to quickly find pages relevant to their needs.

The home page features popular legal topics such as divorce, foreclosure, and name change, letting users quickly find the law and the forms they need. Library Highlights promotes upcoming library CLE classes and features legal research tips and library updates on a weekly basis. New Request a Document forms let users order copies of opinions and other library materials or request a library book be shipped to them directly. We are always ready to answer your questions; Ask a Librarian is just a click away.

For the first time, legal resources from every Wisconsin county will be conveniently available in one location. A new County Resources database offers streamlined access to county departments, forms, procedural guides, sources of legal assistance, court rules and ordinances. Users can simply choose their county or select "All Wisconsin Counties" to browse.

The Library's acclaimed Legal Topics pages provide links to circuit court forms and guides, state and federal agencies, organizations, and state and federal law. The website now offers enhanced features. Each of the topics includes new information such as links to notable titles in the Library's collection, on-point law review articles, and subject area journals.
