The Law Courts Library provides services to all courts in the Law Courts Building: the
High Court of Australia, the

District Court, and
Local Court can also be accessed through the Law Courts Library.
The Law Courts Library is the major law resource for judicial officers in New South Wales and is administered by the Library Services unit within the Department of Justice.
