These are usually the bane of the law librarian's existence. Difficult to order, update, and shelve within the collection, they have sometimes just been relegated to having a "no longer updated" sticker affixed to them. However, many of these hard-to-find laws can now be found on the web at the following sites:
Walter H. Drane Company (http://www.walterdrane.com/internet/index.htm).
Offers access to over 50 local codes.
LexisNexis Municipal Codes Web Library (http://www.bpcnet.com/codes.htm#OH).
Just Akron and Columbus can be found here.
American Legal Publishing (http://amlegal.com/online_library.htm#Ohio).
Users of this site will find a multitude of codes.
The Cincinnati and Dayton codes live here.
Cleveland Legal Codes (http://caselaw.lp.findlaw.com/clevelandcodes)
Cleveland’s Code has finally made it to the Internet. For those interested in burrowing even further into the morass known as municipal lawmaking, the city even offers its City Record (http://tinyurl.com/3z8wr) for further review.
