Services for Law Faculty: Research Assistant Services

 The law library offers a variety of services to law faculty research assistants designed to extend privileges that are not normally available to students.  These services include: proxy borrowing for faculty and library space for holding research materials. Faculty research assistants are encouraged to register for library services by visiting the library website.

Faculty may create and add value to MyPrint accounts to be used by research assistants.  Account balances and usage may be monitored by the faculty member or program coordinator and the password may be changed as needed.  Your program coordinator or Martha Totten (mtotten@bu.edu, x8-5374) will be able to assist you with setting up and funding the account.

Each year the library provides an Orientation and Research Classes for summer research assistants.  The orientation covers registration for library services, research assistant services, and introduces students to library contacts for these services.  Research classes cover advanced techniques and topics relevant to the faculty's research needs.

During the academic year, individual training and orientations are held when research assistants are hired. Please ask your new research assistants to contact Stefanie Weigmann (sweig@bu.edu, Redstone 330 A-4, x8-4997) or one of the legal information librarians (x3-3151) to discuss library collections, online research and training.
