BU Law Library ranked #17, National Jurist

National Jurist ranked the BU Law Library #17 this year, up from #27 in their previous ranking in 2004. “I believe the library’s ranking rose because we are actively licensing electronic titles to support law faculty and student research,” said Law Library Director Marlene Alderman, (pictured at far right).

“The legal information librarians have developed a great research instructional program for law students, and we renovated the third floor to create new study spaces and additional seating for students.”

Academic law libraries submit information and statistics to the ABA annually. National Jurist compared the data from 198 law libraries and ranked them based on the number of volumes and titles, seats, the ratio of professional librarians to students, and open hours.
