New Legal Database: Fastcase


Fastcase allows you to easily find cases, statutes, regulations, court rules, and constitutions. You can also access a newspaper archive, legal forms, and a one-stop PACER search of federal filings through content partners.

For help with using Fastcase, please email Deb Micu, call her at 447-6962, or stop by the Self-Help Legal Clinic on Fridays from 10 am to 12 pm in the Library Group Study Room.

Self-Help Legal Clinic

If you are a student at Helena College and are experiencing a challenging issue that is legal based, please come see us at the self-help legal clinic. Although we do not provide legal advice, we can listen, help you access relevant information sources and refer you to appropriate resources....or just stop in and say hi! The clinic is every Friday from 10:00 am to 12:00 pm in the Library Group Study Room (except November 23).

New Tools for Your Projects



If you love a freshly laminated sheet of paper, do we have news for you! The library now has a laminator for student, staff, and faculty use. There is no cost to use the machine, and lamination sheets (8 ½ x 11”) can be purchased in the bookstore, The machine can accommodate sheets up to 11 x 17”, so you can request larger sizes in the bookstore or bring your own.

Coil-Binding Machine

It’s never too early to start thinking about those final projects. Give them that extra polish with a coil binding. Provided by the Associated Students of Helena College (ASHC), the machine can prepare your documents for a ¼”, ½”, or 2” coil binding. Only $5 per coil.

Paper Cutter

No more frayed edges or cutting one piece of paper at a time. ASHC has replaced the library’s paper cutter with a bigger and sturdier model.
