The Annual State Documents Bibliography is a collection of legal bibliographies compiled for each of the 50 states by librarians and published by AALL.

  • The information provided complements and sometimes duplicates information available in the legal research guides the library owns for each state. Even so, the information in these bibliographies is often more comprehensive and useful than that provided in the commercially published legal research guides.
  • The State Bibliographies usually includes which government documents are available and where, important addresses for libraries/archives/depositories, and bibliographies of primary and secondary sources for legal research.
  • Most bibliographies in this set date from the early 1990s, but may still be very helpful to the researcher who is willing to use the information provided as a starting point and to update it to the present day.

In addition to the print Bibliographies available in the LibraryHeinOnline Spinelli's Law Librarian's Reference Shelf also includes many State Bibliographies.
