Public Law Libraries

All of New York City's law school libraries and most of its university libraries are Federal Depository Libraries and several are designated by the New York State Document Depository Program as New York State Documents Reference Centers. These libraries must make deposited federal and state materials freely available to the public pursuant to the Federal Depository Libraries public access statute and the New York State Document Depository Manual. Library patrons using government document collections might have access to other research material and databases, depending on library policies. Complete list of Federal Depository Libraries in New York.
