Services for Law Faculty: Research Support
Legal Information Librarians * Liaisons * Reference Desk * Classroom Instruction
The legal information librarians have law and library science degrees and considerable experience providing assistance and instruction in electronic and print legal research resources. The librarians develop and teach research methods for substantive law classes and instruct research assistants in legal research methods. They also provide research services to faculty including online database searching, compiling legislative histories, preparing bibliographies and research guides, and locating documents.

All full time faculty members are assigned a librarian liaison. In addition to the general services described above, librarian liaisons may assist with current awareness needs, Blackboard Learn content development, electronic research sources, and other educational or research technologies.

During the summer, the librarians are available during all hours the library is open: Monday-Friday, 9am to 5pm.
The librarians teach basic and advanced legal research. We enjoy teaching and we would be happy to teach a research component in conjunction with any law school course or seminar. Our research instruction integrates print and electronic research and teaches students the most efficient resources to select for their research topics. Librarians also offer research appointments for students writing seminar papers.
