N.B.

  • Pre-1803 Ohio was not a state, but part of the Northwest Territory
  • Fiche for 111th (1975-1976) and 112th (1977-1978) General Assembly’s do have bill numbers on the fiche headers so the right fiche is easy to find for these years. 
  • Circulation staff will first need to look in the first fiche for that year to discern whether there is a table of contents that will limit the spread of pages where the bill may be found. The table of contents entry will be something like “Laws Enacted by the House of Representatives (or Senate).”
