Research Help Instructions

You can access law library research help in a number of ways:

1. In-person. Ask to speak with a reference librarian at the circulation desk during our reference hours. One of our reference librarians will be happy to meet with you.

2. Online chat. On any library web page (including this one), click the "Ask a Question" box on the bottom right to chat with one of our reference librarians. Live online chat is available during our reference hours. At other times, you can use the chat to leave a message, and we'll respond when the next reference librarian is available.

3. By appointment. Schedule a research consultation with a reference librarian at a time convenient for you. You can schedule an in-person appointment or schedule a virtual appointment.
