Library Information

The vision of the Kresge Law Library is to be a great scholarly resource for legal study in the Catholic intellectual tradition in service to the faculty and students of Notre Dame Law School, to the University of Notre Dame, and to the global legal community.

The primary mission of the Kresge Law Library is to provide the necessary scholarly foundation for legal research and to provide space for independent and collaborative study for Notre Dame Law School faculty and students. The law library supports the curricular and scholarly interests of the Law School by acquiring and providing access to print and electronic resources, and by offering formal and informal guidance in their use. Secondarily, the law library supports the legal research requirements of the larger university community.
