Welcome to the Library of the Constitutional Council

The Constitutional Council Library is a specialized library in law sciences. Its opening date dates back to 1989, the date of the creation of the Constitutional Council. It moved into its current premises in September 2007, the date of the inauguration of the new seat of the Constitutional Council, in El-Biar, by the President of the Republic.

The Council Library is a space designed in an Arab-Moorish style with modern touches. It covers an area of 400 m2, developed on two levels in which there are two reading rooms, a multimedia room and a pressroom. Thus, the library offers spaces for reading, research, reflection, documentation and information, to its users in a very friendly and warm atmosphere.

It also offers free and open access to common encyclopedic collections and dictionaries. To meet the needs of research and documentation, its collection is constantly enriched by acquisitions in several disciplines, particularly Law.

The library is open to post-graduate students, researchers and professors every Monday and Wednesday, from 8:30 am to 12 pm and from 1:30 pm to 4 pm. Staff are at their disposal to guide, advise and facilitate their research.

As part of its commitment to to the ongoing improvement of the quality of its services, the library has put its catalogue on the website and started recently the process of digitizing its documentary collection (cover and summary of the book), which will allow its users to consult and conduct their research online at any time.

The library has three (03) SNDL (National System of Documentation on Line) accounts, which is a national portal providing access to a very rich and varied national and international electronic documentation (acquired via subscriptions), covering all fields of research.
