Reference Assistance

The Reference Staff is available to assist and support your research needs. While the staff cannot give legal advice, the reference librarians may assist in proposing and helping to locate relevant text materials, electronic databases, and other resources for your research. For more complex matters, the reference staff may also be consulted for suggestions in framing research strategy and thinking through other available sources. Other services include demonstrations of law library databases, assistance in using any of the law library resources, and offering tours of the library collection for specific practice areas or interests.
