Bronx County Clerks Office is Online.

Most documents on file with the Bronx County Clerks office can be found at their new Internet home. You can either register to go on-line or go on-line as a quest. If you have Adobe Reader, or Adobe Acrobat you can access and download the documents.

A tip of the cap to Jeff Richman for bringing this to my attention.

*New York Online Virtual Electronic Libary, “NOVELNY”

Access information 24/7 from your desktop by logging on to NOVELNY, the New York Online Virtual Electronic Library. A wide variety of resources are available free to New York State residents. There is access to the full text of hundreds of journals, newspapers, and other references. There are over 400 publications with “Law” in the title, such as the the Harvard Law Review, the Insurance Coverage Law Bulletin, and Medical Malpractice Law & Strategy. But most of these “Law” publications are Internet related. Note, however, not all resources are up to day, but it seems that most are. And they vary as to how far back they go in time.

If you have a public library card, New York driver license, or New York non-driver ID you can use NOVELNY. Access is also available to holders of a New York State Resident Borrower’s Card or a New York State Library Borrower’s Card.

Resources are available if you need assistance in using NOVELNY. There is a FAQ page, or you can call the Help Desk (available only Monday – Friday 9:00 am to 4:00 pm Toll-free (877) 277-0250, Capital District (518) 486-6012).

This link has been added to my list of links. And if you find it helpful, let me know.

*Looking for Inexpensive Parking in the City When going to Court or a Deposition?

I have added a site to my list of links that will help you find inexpensive parking in Manhattan when you drive to court, or a deposition. When you are planning on driving, all you have to do is go to New York City Parking Garage Rates to save money. Last Friday, I saved over $23 from the posted rate using this site to find inexpensive parking in Midtown. But if you want to park on the street, or outside of Manhattan go to Find Parking in the Boston and New York City Metro Areas, which has maps showing street parking signs and parking rates at various garages in and outside of Manhattan.


*Internet Sites of Interest and Usefulness

To the right of this post and down a little (up a little as more blogs are posted,) you will see a column entitled Links. Here I will place links to Internet sites that I find interesting as well as sites that I use on a regular basis to obtain information, such as the site for the NYS Department of State Corporation and Business Entity Database which provides information on corporations and not for profit corporations, limited partnerships, limited liability companies and limited liability partnerships, as well as other miscellaneous businesses and sites that I use on a regular basis to obtain documents such as ACRIS, where I can search property records in New York City and obtain deeds and other documents related to properties of interest. Feel free to suggest sites for inclusion.
