The Rutgers School of Law Library in Camden is one of the largest in New Jersey. In addition to the traditional materials, the library subscribes to numerous legal databases including Westlaw, Lexis, Bloomberg, IntelliConnect and HeinOnline. Access is also available to the vast research collections of the entire Rutgers library system and major research libraries in the United States through interlibrary loan. Law students may also supplement their research by using the Paul Robeson Library, located across the mall from the law building.
The law school library consists of three floors of book stacks and a spacious reading room that provides a wonderful view of the campus. Over 400 individual working areas, carrels, and lounge seats are available for library users. Wireless access to the internet is also available throughout the library. Consisting of more than 475,000 bibliographic units in book and microform, the research materials of the collection are arranged in open stacks to permit direct and convenient access.
The collection is strong in its print and electronic holdings of United States law and also includes a selection of material for many foreign jurisdictions. Included in the collection are the standard treatises, texts, digests, citators, loose-leaf services, specialized annotated case reports, and encyclopedias. The collection contains the current revisions and codes of federal statutory law of the United States, and the 52 state and territorial jurisdictions. These are supplemented by the judicial opinions of the appellate courts of all states and reports of opinions delivered in the federal courts of the United States. The law library also maintains a collection of regulations, orders, and reports of both federal and New Jersey administrative agencies.
This library is a congressionally designated depository for U.S. Government documents. Public access to the government documents collection is guaranteed by public law. (Title 44 United States Code)
