Membership Programs

The resources of the San Francisco Law Library are open to all. For extended services, the San Francisco Law Library offers a specialized Premium and Premium Plus Program to support the complex reference and research needs of law firm practices—local, national, and global. All proceeds facilitate access to justice in our community. 

The privileges of membership expand the spectrum of resources available to law firms and corporate legal departments, including citation and document delivery from subscription databases such as Lexis, Westlaw, CEB OnLAW, HeinOnline, Fastcase, and the LexisNexis Digital Library, along with other extensive services. Reference requests from member firms and corporate legal departments receive the highest level of attention from the expert San Francisco Law Library Reference Team.
