About the Library



The Library of the Law School of Ribeirão Preto was made official in late 2007, when its inclusion in USP Bibliographic Database – DEDALUS was required in November of that same year. Its activities began in January 2008 with two members of staff, that transferred from other schools in the Ribeirão Preto campus: librarian Milena Celere and administrative technician Rodrigo Brunelli Pirani. During the first year, the Central Library of the Ribeirão Preto Campus – BCRP conceded a room of approximately 40 square meters, with two computers, two work desks, two study tables with eight spots and 9 bookshelves.


In mid-2009, BCRP closed down due to a strike, which made it impossible for FDRP students to be seen to. This sped up the moving plans. By the end of May, the Library had moved to a temporary room in Block C in the FDRP building, that was still under construction.


The new space was 250 square meters and had nine computers (three for queries and six for work), 16 tables (five for work and 11 for study) with four spots each, a space with a table for daily newspaper reading and 18 double-sided bookshelves. The library grew in space and human resources, getting one more librarian and another administrative technician.


In 2010, the library’s staff was completed, with 3 librarians, 3 administrative technicians, 1 assistant and 1 intern student.

In January 2011, the library finally moves to its permanent space, with 880 square meters in two floors (mezzanine and ground floor).


Administratively, the Library is subordinated to the FDRP Dean’s Office and has its own Regulation. The Library Committee was created in April 22, 2009, to aid the Library Management and the Dean’s Council. Its organization and functioning are described in its Regulations. Since its creation, the library has accompanied FDRP’s growth, improving its products and services offered, with the goal of becoming a reference for research in the legal field in the Ribeirão Preto region.
