Since 1989, this is a specialised library in socio-legal studies, open to all researchers.

It hosts the potentially best collection of socio-legal resources in the world, with more than 22.500 catalogued books, together with a valuable journals collection, included the complete collections of sociolegal journals

There is direct access to books and journals at the reading rooms.Most of the collection is in English (also in Spanish, Basque, Italian, German, French, Dutch, Portuguese)

The classification system, designed for our library, develops extensively the sociolegal areas. It is a useful tool for the visiting scholars to find out their interest fields.

The catalogue contains more than 120.000 books and other materials (records of the books, chapters in collective works, journals articles and digital files). All of them are analyzed with English keywords. When available the Open Access link is included.

The visiting library scholars can get acommodation at the IISL's Antia Residence Form if requested in advance.

All researchers wishing to visit the library must fill in the visitor's application form, after which they will receive the IISL library card on arrival.
