The mission of Georgetown Law Library is to support the research, scholarship, and educational endeavors of the students and faculty of the Georgetown University Law Center, by collecting, organizing, preserving, and disseminating legal and law related information in any form; providing effective service and instructional programs; and utilizing electronic information systems to provide access to new information products and services.

The Georgetown Law Library Collection Development Policy supports the library’s mission by setting forth the philosophy and principles under which our collection is shaped and provides guidelines for decisions concerning the collection of materials necessary to support research and scholarship at Georgetown Law.  The policy provides a rational framework for present collection activities and will be periodically reviewed to ensure that it meets the community’s needs.
