Chickasaw Nation Law Library at Oklahoma City University School of Law: Collection Building

Collection Building Overview

Law Librarians and staff work diligently to ensure that faculty have access to materials necessary for legal research and instruction. Listed below are a few of the types of materials law librarians work to keep current and purchase to meet faculty needs.


The Chickasaw Nation Law Library houses a collection of over 100,000 monographs (books, DVDs, etc.). These items are purchased one time and permanently reside in the collection. Many of our monographs are part of series on various legal topics, and updated/new volumes are purchased for the collection on a regular basis.

Legal Databases

The Law Library provides access to several legal databases that assist with legal research and instruction. These databases are licensed on a yearly basis. If the law library does not renew a license to a database, the law school no longer has access to those materials.

To view a list of the Law Library's databases, visit the Databases and Links, A-Z page.


Periodicals refer to the individual journals and magazines that the library subscribes to. A majority of our periodical subscriptions are digital, though there are several print periodicals available for checkout.
