The Rutgers Law Library welcomes our alumni, members of the bar, and the public. We have a broad spectrum of print and digital information resources to support your work. Although we are especially eager to welcome our alums back to the law library, we are also eager to assist practicing attorneys. Please ask at the Reference desk if you have any questions about the scope and availability of our digital collections. Please review our public services for further information regarding some of the particular services we offer to the New Jersey legal community. Information about Library operating and reference hours can be found here.
