Print collection

The LawBod's current US collection is arranged according to Moys Classification system and shelved on Level 2. The works have U4 in their shelf marks.

A work on US law may be a Reading List title - such as the Posner below - so pay attention to SOLO results for mention of the Law Reserve Collection. Anyone is welcome to read these books, but they must be asked for at the Law Enquiry Desk - and readers need to bring their Oxford University or Bodleian Reader Card with them.

Older material eg previous editions may have USA at the beginning & (sec coll) after their shelf marks. These are available for you to read, but are on the Ground Floor. 
Just ask a member of staff if you require any further directions when you are in the library!
