If free access to the law and to the case law is often considered one of the ways to develop e-justice, access to information about legal publications is somewhat off the radar. This is very strange if we consider the role of legal doctrine in the process of creating law and in the process of applying (juris-dicere) the law. The free online catalogue of the Library of the Court of Justice of the European Union gives access to all its bibliographical records and allows everyone who has Internet access to research EU law and other fields of law effectively. This Chapter analyses the tasks of the Library and the collections in order to find out how this could facilitate access to legal information in certain fields and then examine the changes that the library is facing, due to technological development, to the use of electronic resources and to the more and more stringent constraints on financial and human resources.
