Nebraska State Library Social Media Use Policy

About:

   The Nebraska State Library is a public-court law library with a collection of over 130,000 volumes and several subscription-based legal databases. These resources aid the library in the fulfillment of its mission to provide open, reliable access to legal information.

   The Nebraska State Library maintains a comprehensive collection of legal resources, including state and federal cases and statutes, treatises, Nebraska specific materials and forms, legal encyclopedias, and electronic databases. Although the Nebraska State Library does check out some materials to licensed attorneys and state agency employees, it is primarily a reference/research library as opposed to a circulating library.

Mission:

   The Nebraska State Library strives to enhance knowledge of the law and facilitate access to justice by providing patrons with access to current and accurate legal information.

  • The purpose of the Nebraska State Library’s social media page is to further the library’s mission by providing information about its collection and services, legal research tips, legal news, and link-worthy material from peer institutions.

Services:

   The Nebraska State Library’s staff provides legal reference and research assistance in person, by telephone, and by email. As librarians, the staff can help patrons locate appropriate print and electronic resources, and advise them on efficient and effective research techniques. Library staff cannot tell patrons what forms to file, assist with preparing legal documents, interpret the law, or offer any legal advice. Please contact the library at nsc.lawlibrary@nebraska.gov OR call 402-471-3189 for all reference assistance.

Linking:

   Links posted by the library to any other websites do not constitute or imply an endorsement of those sites, their content, or the products and services associated with those sites.

Privacy:

   All communication through the Nebraska State Library social media page is public. Visitors should be careful about posting any private or personally identifiable information and should limit such information to the minimum necessary to communicate their message. If patrons need to include private information in communications with the library, please contact the library directly at nsc.lawlibrary@nebraska.gov OR call 402-471-3189.

Intellectual Property Rights and Ownership:

   The Nebraska State Library respects the rights of all copyright holders. If a copyright holder believes that his or her work has been posted in a way that constitutes copyright infringement, please email the library at nsc.lawlibrary@nebraska.gov.
