About Us

OCLA is an acronym for the Ontario Courthouse Libraries Association. There are 48 courthouse libraries across Ontario, most located in or near an Ontario Court of Justice or Ontario Superior Court of Justice. OCLA libraries are divided into 3 classification types: 5 regional libraries, 15 area libraries, and 28 local libraries based on size of membership, proximity to law school and major centres.

The most recent project our association has funded is the OCLA App.  This app provides a quick overview of the location, access, services, etc. available at every courthouse library/practice resource centre in the the province.  Upload to your smartphone now.
