What you saw and what you know: This (new) institution was formed by the merging of Rutgers Schools of Law in Camden and Newark.
What you didn’t see and what you may not know: the task of merging was taken on by the law libraries of each individual institution, as well, to form one unified law library and catalog.
What does that mean for our patrons? More resources!
That’s right, the merging of the law school libraries enables greater sharing of resources between the Camden and Newark campuses. Members of the law school community will be able to view the holdings of both libraries, and even check out those resources, through the unified catalog. Members of the Camden community who would like an item that lives in the Newark Law Library location should simply place a “Hold” on the item while logged in to the system. Please note that the “Hold” feature only applies to generally circulating materials. Users will be notified by the system if their hold request cannot be processed.
Sharing of resources is not limited to books and library materials, however; members of the Camden campus are encouraged to reach out to Newark librarians with any questions that arise.
