Try This @ Home: Legal Forms Online

Our Telephone Reference Desk fields a number of requests from people looking for legal forms, from name changes to rental agreements, from sample letters to wills, and everything in between. To help them get those forms, the library subscribes to - ta dah! - Legal Forms Online!

This electronic collection includes official, California specific, federal, business, personal, real estate and general forms covering hundreds of legal subjects and issues. It includes forms drafted by attorneys, forms from public records and participating companies. It also includes a directory of attorneys, a legal dictionary, and tax forms.

Some forms can be filled out online and then printed; others must be printed first, and then filled out. All are free for Sacramento Public Library cardholders, because the library pays for the subscription.

To use this collection, point your browser to the library's web page,, and then click "Find articles/databases" in the Online Services section. ThomsonGale Legal Forms are in the "Reference" category. If you are at home, you will be prompted to enter your library card number and PIN. If you have questions, contact us by phone or e-mail and we'll do our best to help.

The new e-cards also work for accessing the library's e-resources from personal computers.
