The United States Department of Justice (DOJ) Libraries offers legal and general reference and research services, research resources acquisitions services, cataloging services, and digitization services. DOJ Libraries provide access to extensive legal/non-legal print collections and online legal resources. Library services are provided primarily to the Offices, Boards and Divisions of the United States Department of Justice. The Main Library located in the Robert F. Kennedy Justice Building contains broad collections of congressional, legal and general research materials. In addition, branch Libraries support the DOJ’s litigating Divisions and maintain special collections of particular interest to the personnel of the Divisions. Most locations are staffed Monday - Friday, 9:00 a.m. - 5:30 p.m.
Our collections and resources are generally for the use of DOJ personnel. Due to security restrictions, the DOJ Main and branch Libraries are only open to the public by appointment for access to specific government depository items or those titles which are unique to our Libraries and cannot be located elsewhere. Library staff may be contacted at (202) 532-4895.
