The San Joaquin College of Law (SJCL) Library holds approximately 80,000 volumes and volume equivalents including law reviews, annotated codes, appellate court reports of all jurisdictions, and complete Federal and California reporters.

The SJCL Library is a member of several state and national interlibrary loan networks. Many journals, law reviews, manuscripts or treatises can be requested through the SJCL Library.

In addition, hundreds of thousands of volumes are available through Lexis-Nexis and WestLaw. These two proprietary legal research systems, to which students have free unlimited access for academic use, are available via the internet 24 hours a day.

Many other legal materials are also available in the library via microforms and proprietary databases, including the Making of Modern Law collection. Study carrels and two Group Study rooms for meetings are available on the second floor of the SJCL Library.

The SJCL Library is available only to faculty, students, and alumni of the Law School.

Six workstations provide student access to the Internet and word-processing programs, during all library hours. The SJCL Library is also wifi compatible for internet use and printing.
