We continue to partner with LexisNexis during our closure due to the Covid-19 pandemic in order to continue providing access to Library Patrons remotely during this crises.

If you cannot otherwise conduct legal research you are welcome to register for a one-time Lexis Advance® ID at https://www.lexisnexis.com/en-us/pa-access.page [lexisnexis.com]. This ID will be good until for 30 days or until August 31st, 2020. This ID will be delivered to you within one business day and allows you to conduct research on the cases, codes, and secondary resources needed for your legal work and personal legal research.

If your research needs extend beyond 30 days or if you have already used your 30 day free period then please call 1-888-AT-LEXIS to discuss personalized plan options.

To provide a public legal research facility to the citizens and visitors of the County, in order to facilitate access to legal information and enhance the administration of justice.

Your public research facility strives to provide a relevant, reliable, and easily accessible collection of legal resources. We have a comprehensive collection of print and electronic resources covering federal, regional, state and local jurisdictions. The Library is funded by a filing fee assessed on civil filings. The operational management is a collaborative effort between the Domestic Relations Office and the El Paso County private bar. The Bar participates through a Law Library Committee consisting of judges and attorneys, selected annually by the local Bar Association president.
