This paper is written to illustrate the experience of Dar al-Hikmah library relocating a law library to a law faculty’s resource centre. The law library in this article refers to Mohamed Ismail & Co. library, Damansara, Kuala Lumpur, while the law faculty’s resource centre in this article refers to Razali Nawawi Resource Centre (RNRC), Ahmad Ibrahim Kulliyyah of Laws (AIKOL), Gombak, Selangor. This paper is written based on the author’s observation, experience and review of related literature, and shares the author’s approach in moving the law library, the inventory process, the moving process and the challenges during the moving process. Generally, the approach shared in this paper can be applied to any library collection, especially a law library. It is hoped that the ideas and experience serve as a contribution to law libraries in other higher learning institutions in Malaysia or any other types of special libraries worldwide.
