Indiana University - Bloomington Law Library houses a first-rate collection in Anglo-American law as well as substantial holdings in international and foreign law. In addition to its outstanding print collection, the Law Library offers users access to numerous, important electronic legal information sources through the Online Resources section of their Web site. These resources support students and faculty at the Mauer School of Law.


For more general legal resources use materials identified on this web page. The IUB Libraries have been a U.S. Federal Depository Library since 1881, and thus receives and houses a substantial legal reference collection in the IUB Wells Library's Government Information, Maps and Microform Services area, including copies of the U.S. Code, Code of Federal Regulations, and Statutes at Large.  This collection is specifically strong for legislative materials while the IU Bloomington Law Library is superior and handles almost all case-law questions.  The electronic resources listed in the resources section include Lexis-Nexis (including Academic and Congressional, with almost all full-text) and Hein Online.  Official online sources include GPO Access and Thomas (at the Library of Congress).
