We have at JUST’s office in Petaling Jaya a modest library that houses resources and materials. JUST members as well as members of the public are welcome to use the library for their own research.
You can spend pleasurable and useful time searching for information about the most critical issues of our times, reading books, magazine articles, or watching CD-ROMS and VCDs. If you are a JUST member you can also borrow some of the items.
Resources and Materials
In our library, you will find about 2000 books dealing with law, politics, human rights, media, religion, various current global issues, and themes connected to inter-civilization dialogue.
The magazine section includes conference papers and periodicals. There are about 20 current magazines / journals sent to us free of charge. Some are in exchange for our Commentary.
Apart from books and magazines, the library has various articles from magazines, newspapers and other sources. It also has a small number of video tapes, CD-ROMs as well as VCDs.
