For a number of  decades the Law Library participated in the Library of Congress Cooperative Acquisitions Program for India, and it has only been in the last year that it has terminated its participation for monographs.  We continue to participate in the serials portion of the program. With this decision the Indian collection will lose much of its comprehensiveness, but the tradeoff is a much more focused collection in the areas of greatest interest: legal history, constitutional law, environmental law, human rights, and international law.  The Indian collection is supported by the Manupatra database.  The Law Library continues to participate in both the monographs and serials programs of the Library of Congress Cooperative Acquisition Program for Pakistan.
