This paper was originally presented under the title, “The Peace Palace Library. Its collections: historic and those serving the objective of contemporary arbitration and adjudication. Its users: courts, academics and the general public” at the Socio-Legal Sources and Methods in International Law workshop, held at the Institute of Advanced Legal Studies in London on November 25th, 2016. Since the 1924-1952 Peace Palace Library Director Dr Jacob ter Meulen played such a crucial role in the shaping of the Special Collections about which the above mentioned lecture was centered the text and form of everything hereunder focuses extensively on Dr Jacob ter Meulen. Moreover, it is worth addressing the life and work of Dr Jacob ter Meulen because he has not received much scholarly attention in easily available publications such as Legal Information Management.
