On the Shelf – Gifted Items

Three titles recently received by gift for the Law Library’s collection. (Photo by Betty Lupinacci and Pamela Oliver)

As most of you probably know, the Law Library builds its collection from many sources.  We receive United States-published titles through copyright deposit; governments at other jurisdictional levels send us material via exchange or transfer arrangements; we purchase foreign titles through the Library’s Acquisitions and Bibliographic Access Directorate, etc.

But, in case you were wondering, we also accept gifts.  Libraries donate material to us when they pare down their collections, authors will donate their own works, and we get the occasional gift of a rare book or hard-to-acquire item from people interested in furthering our collection.  We then evaluate these donations to see if they fit our collection guidelines and select what we will keep.

Some of the more recent gifts we have selected for the collection cover a variety of topics:

KZD1145.G37 2018  García San José, Daniel I.  Interstellar law : ius gentium for new worlds

KDK121.7.H35 2018 Hall, Eamonn G. and E Rory O’Connor. The notary of Ireland : law and practice

K690.O45 2018  Oliva Izquierdo, Alexia, and Antonio Manuel Oliva Rodríguez, Antonio Manuel Oliva Izquierdo. Matrimonial property regimes throughout the world.

Two of the titles pictured above are so new that they have not yet been cataloged, but thanks to the work of the Law cataloging team they will soon join the collection:

Rodrigo Monteiro da Silva. O Ministério Publico e a Constituição Federal

Alexander Araujo de Souza, Américo Bedê Júnior, et al. Segurança Pública.

We at the Law Library are so grateful for these items as they make unique and valuable additions to our holdings.
