A. The New York State Legislature has a site where you can search Legislative Session Information (including bill text, status, summaries, sponsor memos and floor vote) as well as Legislative Resolutions and the Laws of New York.

Q. How do I find Regulations that relate to topics other than libraries?
A. Unfortunately, many regulations are not readily available on the World Wide Web. However, you can access the New York Codes, Rules, and Regulations through commercial databases such as Legislative Retrieval System, Lexis-Nexis, or Westlaw. Other institutions where regulations can be found are law libraries, large public libraries, academic libraries with strong law collections, and New York State Supreme Court libraries, which are open to the general public.
