The value of working with librarians

We're Here to Help!

The Library and librarians are here to provide any type of research assistance you need - whether it's finding out if the Library has a particular book in the collection to providing in-depth one-on-one assistance with a research project.  

Legal research can be complex and confounding and you may need help using the multiple resources you have available to you.  That's why we're here!  Don't hesitate to ask for help - you can find a librarian at the reference desk, or contact us through email or chat.  You can also schedule an appointment with me or any of the reference librarians for one-on-one help.
