Federal Depository Library Programfldp-resize

The law library is a selective depository of publications distributed by the United States Government as part of the Federal Depository Library Program. Materials are selected that support the general collection priorities of the library and that meet the government information needs of our primary clientele, based on the FDLP’s “Suggested Core Collection for Law Libraries.” The library maintains a mostly electronic collection. Access to the library’s holdings is provided through the online catalog and, when applicable, links are included to the electronic version of the titles.

California Library Depository Act

The library is also a selective depository law library under the CLDA. The library keeps basic legal state documents, which include basic legal documents  such as legislative bills, legislative committee hearings and reports, legislative journals, statutes, administrative reports, California Code of Regulations, annual reports of state agencies and other legal materials published by the state. Many of these materials are available electronically. Print materials are housed  in both the Government Documents area and the general collection.
