Historical Resources: Legislation, Regulation, and Courts

This page presents material related to the history of Rhode Island's legislation, regulations, and courts.  Most of these materials are state publications in print format.  They are housed on the Lower Level of the library Ranges A to C.  Reference materials relating to Rhode Island State publications are shelved on the First Floor Government Publications Range 37.  The state publications resources listed below are cataloged under an in-house classification system (the Swank system), which is based on the issuing state agency preceded by the number 39, e.g. 39-E68 (39=Rhode Island, E68=Dept. of Economic Development). 

Some of these resources are also located in the Reference Area of the library on the first floor.  If you need help locating materials, please contact the Info & Research Help Desk.
