The primary mission of the Idaho State Law Library is to assist the Idaho Supreme Court in carrying out its responsibility for the administration of justice in the state and to help increase the public's access to and understanding of the court system. This mission is accomplished by acquiring and maintaining appropriate legal resources; promulgating policies and rules for the use of these materials; and regularly reviewing the programs, policies and services of the library to ensure that they meet the current and future needs of the Court and other library patrons.
