We’re here to meet all your research needs!
The mission of the New York Law Institute is to offer our members a portal to legal information by providing “just in time” access to legal materials. NYLI members no longer need to physically own every book or resource, including those used only rarely or occasionally. Instead, membership in NYLI gives our members an opportunity to access both print materials and items in our electronic collection whenever these materials are needed.
NYLI’s staff of experienced, full-time law librarians offers professional reference and research assistance to our members. Use this service when you are not sure of what specific kind of book or document you are looking for, when you don’t know where the answer to your question exists, or if you require a complex search that draws upon multiple resources.
