So Long, Blog

find_us_on_facebook_badge.gifDear loyal blog readers:

We are retiring the Utah State Law Library blog after more than four years and 800+ posts. The blog has been a great way for library staff to share library news, new forms, court resources and other law-related resources. But with a noticeable decline in blog readers we will now exclusively use our Facebook page to share news and announcements. Please 'Like' us!

As always, you can contact library staff with questions about self help resources on the Utah State Courts' website or about library resources.

Thank you for reading, and we look forward to seeing you on Facebook!
