Finding What You Need in the Law Library

The new Circulation and Reference area

The new Circulation and Reference area

Hopefully you have found the wonderful amenities in our new library space—you know where the terraces are, you have found the place that will contain Miss Demeanor’s Café, and you located the bathrooms.

Now you need to know where to find things.  Use this guide to find things you need.

Reserve Items: Course required books, book stands, lap desks, games, and more are available on request at the Circulation Desk.

Reference Collection:  The materials you used to ask for at the Reference Desk and the other reference materials, including a copy of the Official Code of Georgia (O.C.G.A.) are located just to the right of the Reference Desk.

Study Aids:  The Study Aid Collection can be found in the same low shelves as the Reference Collection—just to the right of the Reference Desk.

Georgia Collection:  The Georgia state materials are located on the library 5th floor behind the elevators, in free-standing shelves.  The collection includes Georgia primary sources including Georgia Laws, West’s Annotated Code of Georgia, and reporters for Georgia cases.  You will find secondary sources including past editions of Georgia treatises (current editions are in the Reference Collection) such as Redfearn Wills and Administration in Georgia and a wide variety of Georgia continuing legal education materials.

Core Practice Collection:  A number of our heavily-used resources and practitioner tools, such as legal encyclopedias, form books, and practice guides are located the Core Practice Collection on the 5th floor behind the elevators, right next to the Georgia Collection.

Law General Stacks:  Material in General Stacks are located on both the 5th and 6th floors.  Call numbers beginning with AC and running through KE will be found on the 5th floor, starting behind the elevators.  If the call number starts with KF1 or comes later in the alphabet, you’ll want to start looking for the title on the 6th floor, just as you walk off the elevator.

Law Periodicals:  If you want to look at a journal article that you can’t access online because it’s too recently published, you may want to come up to the 6th floor behind the elevators.  The journal titles are in alphabetical order.

Leisure Collection:  The DVDs, fiction, and fun non-fiction are all still available for you to check out and enjoy—they are located at the back of the active learning area on the 5th floor.  Walk past the IT Help desk and turn left, and you’ll walk right to the collection.

If you have any questions about finding our other special collections—state materials or the Young Adult Collection—please stop by the reference desk and we will be happy to help you!

Welcome to the new building!
