Want to send reference staff a question about our collections and services?

The Library of Congress was established in 1800 essentially as a collection of law books. In 1832, Congress ordered that the 2,011 law books of the Library of Congress be separated from its general collection, and the Law Library of Congress was thereby established. Its mission is to provide research and legal information to the U.S. Congress as well as to U.S. Federal Courts and Executive Agencies, and to offer reference services to the public. To accomplish this mission, it has created the world's largest collection of law books and other legal resources from all countries, and provides access to digital legal information, online databases and guides to legal information worldwide.
