In August 2000, the Law Library, now known as the Law Collection, was established when the then College of The Bahamas now, University of The Bahamas implemented an LL.B. program in collaboration with Barbados’ Cave Hill Campus of the University of the West Indies (UWI). The Law Collection began with less than 200 items. Nearly 18 years later, the collection has expanded to include more than 12,000 items, inclusive of materials on reserve, and the general circulating collection. It also contains more than eight Caribbean-speciﬁc law journals. Additionally, law journals are available in print and full text through the library’s online databases. In April 2011, with the completion of the state of the art Harry C. Moore Library and Information Centre, the Law Collection was integrated with the main campus library located on the 2nd ﬂoor. The Law Collection can accommodate 125 students and has 10 computer stations with Internet access, four of which are reserved for law students only.
The Law Collection comprises materials in electronic and print format. Print resources include: updated law reports, law journals, law articles, Bahamas unreported judgments, Industrial Tribunal unreported judgments, The Bahamas’ Gazettes (inclusive of its Statutory Instruments and Acts) and text books on various law disciplines relevant to the LL.B. program oﬀered at The University of The Bahamas.The Law Collection primarily serves University of the Bahamas students as well as Law Faculty, Alumni and by extension, Attorneys-at- Law, Paralegals for a small fee
