Part of the Alberta Court Services is access to the Alberta Law Libraries. The primary mission of Alberta Law Libraries is to facilitate access to legal information for the Alberta community, including its judiciary, lawyers, citizens, libraries and government agencies. Alberta Law Libraries (ALL) were formed in 2009 when Alberta Court Libraries and Alberta Law Society Libraries were amalgamated. ALL has served the legal community in Alberta since 1885 and use of our collections is free to all who visit our libraries.

The Legislature Library has been serving the information needs of Alberta legislators since 1906. Located at its current site in the Legislature Building since the fall of 1911, it was once referred to as the Provincial Library. Although its primary clientele are the Members of the Legislative Assembly, its resources have always been available to the general public. The collection is particularly strong in the areas of Alberta and Federal government documents, Alberta newspapers, and Alberta history and politics. There is also an extensive collection of government documents from other Canadian provinces and territories. Other subject concentrations of note are in public administration, comparative politics, and political science.
