Strengths:
The Alexander Campbell King Law Library at the University of Georgia maintains a collection numbering in excess of 500,000 volumes and volume equivalents. The collections of domestic law, both state and federal, are quite comprehensive. The Law Library is a selective depository for United States government documents; it is one of only 11 U.S. law school depositories for European Union documents; and it also maintains an extensive collection of United Nations documents. The EU and UN documents complement a well-developed collection of foreign and international law designed to support the LLM program, the Rusk Center, the Georgia Journal of International and Comparative Law, and the work of several internationally acclaimed scholars who are members of the law faculty. Three computer labs permit law students to use a variety of networked electronic resources. The Law Library web page provides links to hundreds of web databases of use to legal researchers, and the library also provides computers for use by the general public. The on-line catalog, GAVEL, allows library users and potential users to search Law Library collections from any computer with Internet access.
